Two Geeks and a Podcast #Twelve – Be A Superhero

Greetings glorious geeks!

This week’s podcast is a big one, clocking in well over our normal 30 min goal, but our talk today could not be constrained or rushed into half an hour.  Last week while at Gateway 2015 we were faced with sexism in a very direct way and we want to talk about it with our audience.  We won’t let bigotry go unnoticed and leave victims feeling alone.  We want to see our beautiful and amazing geek community unite and banish this kind of ignorance from the world.  By telling our story on this podcast we hope to educate and inspire others to stand side by side with their fellow human beings and defend each other from hatred.  Buckle up, this one’s gonna get heavy.

Boards, Dice, & Advice #1 – Our Tabletop Gaming Journey Begins

Tabletop gaming is on the rise and new games are being released every month. With this long loved hobby coming back into mainstream gaming, it can become intimidating for new gamers to get into the swing of things.

Boards, Dice, & Advice is a column for new and beginner gamers. I have been working in the Tabletop industry for about 2 years now and I love what do.

I plan on sharing what I do know and as I continue to learn along the way I’ll be bringing it all to you.
