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!

Feb 18, 2020

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.

Jan 28, 2020

You didn't request an episode about the death of Legacy, but here we are!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:19:54

As per the topic, we tell a story about a villain vs a villain, but with unexpected twists!

We get to the Overview just after 10 minutes in, questions at the 38 minute mark, and talk about the above cover at around 1 hour and 14 minutes. Note: the last question we answer is one of the best questions with one of the best answer, and also this is one of my favorite covers that Adam has ever done. 

Catch you next time!

Jan 21, 2020

The first live show of the year!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:17:59

Here's the upcoming schedule!

  • Tuesday, February 4th: Episode #134 Writer’s Room: Disparation vol. 1
  • Tuesday, February 11th: Episode #135 Writer’s Room: an early Parse story
  • Tuesday, February 18th: Editor’s Note #39
  • Tuesday, February 25th: Episode #136 Creative Process: Naturalist supporting cast

And here's the calendar of when we're recording:

(Mind you, this could all change if Adam has a baby.)

We talk about all manner of things in this one, including but not limited to:

  • OblivAeon
  • The SCRPG
  • Animated Shows
  • Babies
  • Sunglasses
  • and more!

Also, we were asked a question about what Mr. Fixer was called by each of the characters that met him in the show. 

  • NightMist: “Harry”
  • Setback: “Slim”
  • Expatriette: “Fixer”
  • Harpy: "Mr. Walker"
  • Chairman: "Old Man"

We're here to help!

Jan 14, 2020

We're finally back!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:08:32

We're here in the future! And we're going to talk about the past! A not-too-distant but very different past!

We tell a tale out of the Inversiverse, and things get twisty! We finally start in with overviewing and storytelling around four and a half minutes in. 

After all that noodling, we finally get to your questions at the 47 minute mark.

If you're on the Letters Page Patreon, join us this coming Friday for our anniversary live show! We didn't intend for it to be specifically an anniversary live show, but it turns out that we're doing that recording on the same date that we launched our first episode in 2017! So long ago! No one was alive then!

Thanks, everyone!

Jan 7, 2020

Welcome to a new year-- a new century!!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 6:24

Just a quick hello to usher in a new year. Thanks for making this show possible!

 

Dec 31, 2019

Hey, everyone! We said there was no episode this week, but hopefully you've learned that you can't trust us by now!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 20:25

We talk about this year, answer some questions, and perhaps more? (No, not really anything more than that.)

See you next year, everyone!

Dec 24, 2019

It's Christmas Eve! Let's talk about an avenging angel with absolutely no chill whatsoever.

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:20:50

We talk a bit about Christmas, and then, about 4 minutes in, we get to work!

We expected this one to be tough, but it turns out that we were visited by the ghost of Sentinel Comics past, and they did the work for us! 

Just after the 53 minute mark, we start in on your questions.

At just before an hour and 15 minutes in, we talk a bit about the cover, which is shown above.

Happy Holidays, everyone! See you all next year!
