Welcome to the podcast that takes a critical approach to RPGs. I ran a podcast review show of RPGs and related materials some years ago, and the new show is a variation on that theme. It will be a more academic and critical approach to the material. There are several reasons for this change. For one, RPGs are an art form – RPGs deserve this kind of approach as a unique form. Also, this lets me use the skills I acquired in graduate school. Finally, it allows me and my massive ego to strut around.
