4. Podcast News
A) 2d6 Feet in a Random Direction and Pulp Gamer have both recently interviewed Chris Pramas

Why is this important? Listen to Accidental Survivors Episode 8 (Chainmail Bikini) and listen to Mr. Oh-So-Superior ridiculing the correct pronunciation of Green Ronin. Check out the interviews if you think I'm lying. Mr. Pramas did some research, and there is a correct way to pronounce the name, which Rob apparently does not know.

The 2d6 Feet episode can be found at the Pulp Gamer episode can be found at

B) The Dragon Page: Cover to Cover
Probably everyone else in the podosphere has heard of this show before, but I have only recently caught on to it. I learned about it from Mike Stackpole's The Secrets Podcast. Cover to Cover is all about fantasy and science fiction literature. There are interviews with authors and industry insiders and lots of related chatter. Lots of interesting stuff for those of us out there who enjoy our spec fic lit.
