Parse gets murdery!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:26:31

To be fair, Parse started out very murdery, and then mellowed over time. Today, we tell one of those early stories, and we do not hold back! Slight content warning on this one for (audio discussion of) graphic violence, as well as some drugs (not really drugs used, though - just drugs being generally around). Also, she's a jerk. Just so you know. Forewarned is forearmed, and with the amount Parse uses that bow, she's gotta have great forearms, right?

At around the 47 minute mark, we get into questions. You asked them - we answer them!

We talk a bit about the cover just after 1 hour and 16 minutes in, though you likely have already seen the cover by now. It's in these show notes!

Thanks everyone for listening! We're getting close to March, in which the recording and episode release schedule starts to get more normal. Thanks for bearing with us!

Adam's back! I'm excited. Are you excited? You should be.

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:30:22

I'd say we spend a lot of time goofing around, but let's be real: Adam and I only see each other once a week these days, so there's a LOT of goofing to be done. Gotta get it all out of our systems!

Here's the upcoming schedule!

  • Tuesday, March 3rd: Episode #136 - Creative Process: Naturalist supporting cast
  • Tuesday, March 10th: Episode #137 - Writer's Room: Chrono-Ranger in Feudal Japan
  • Tuesday, March 17th: Episode #138 - Writer's Room: Hero/Villain team-up
  • Tuesday, March 24th: Editor’s Note #40
  • Tuesday, March 31st: Episode #139 - Creative Process: Absolute Zero’s villains

And who doesn't love a photo of a calendar?

That big red stripe on the calendar is when I'm out of town in March, so we're making up with a recording on the first Thursday, and then we're back on schedule in real time with March's Editor's Note. No more being a week ahead of schedule for us!

We field a lot of questions on a lot of topics! Such as:

  • OblivAeon
  • Sentinel Comics: the Roleplaying Game
  • Fanatic
  • Valentimes
  • Sunglasses
  • Totally Real Medical Science
  • and more!

Thanks for listening, everyone! We hope you like us as much as we like you!

A familiar team, yet one that never was!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:06:35

We do another early Disparation story! These are always fun.

Just a note on Letters Page timeline: we're pretty much back on our regular schedule but the episode numbering is one behind since we interjected with last week's non-standard episode. As a result, the first episode for March will be what was going to be the last February episode. We'll still have voting and Editor's Notes as usual, and we're still a week ahead on recording time, just in case Adam has to pull away for a week for baby reasons, which is not entirely unlikely. We shall see! 

Catch you next time!

WHAT IS EVEN HAPPENING

Show Notes: 

Run Time: 40:06

This isn't a real episode! I mean, it has all of the elements you'd expect: an overview, a questions section, and even some things from the past that you might not expect! However, it's missing a major key part that makes Letters Page episodes possible. You'll just have to listen to find out.

More notes? Nah, no more notes. Take a listen. It's a fun time.
