A) Gamer Traveler Begins!
Daniel Perez of Highmoon Media, a role-playing game publisher, has re-started the Gamer Traveler podcast. Now, this used to be a section on Dragon's Landing Inn, and it was always a lot of fun. Now it's on its own. Episode 0--an introduction--and Episode 1--on Warwick Castle--are up. Go have a listen. I'm subscribing to this one. It's great. It's a one man podcast, but Daniel is an animated host and he maintains a good pace, or else he puts a lot of time into editing. Whatever the case, its great fun to listen to and a definite quality podcast. You can find it at www.thegamertraveler.com

B) 2006 Geekies Awards at GeeksOn
Geeks On, the podcast about all things geekie, has had their second annual Geekies awards, voted on through their forums. Not only are there awards for best animated movie, best actor, and best geek TV show, but also hottest actress and actor. The voting is done, but the podcast itself includes the hosts' picks and lots of banter about the various categories. Geeks On is always fun and this is a good introduction if you've never listened before. Check it out at geekson.com

Got the recording of episode 8 done, tentatively titled "Chainmail Bikini," for reasons explicated in the show. Unfortunately, I (Fraser) have had a busy week. My wife and I are buying a house, and my sister and her family dropped by a day earlier than planned--so the time I had set aside for editing disappeared. The new episode should be up next week.
