Aching God: Mike Shel Interview

Mike Shel pretty much schools us on Aching God, RPGs, psychology, and proper methods of maniacal, sadistic punishment. We laughed. We cried. Dan was almost flayed alive. A good time had by all. Check out Mike on Twitter @MikeShelAuthor and see Aching God as a finalist in the SPFBO competition. Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.

The Crimson Queen Part Three + Author Interview

The boys are back at it again. In a very anti-Immortal episode Luke roasts Demian, and Dan comes down very hard on Jan (again). We wrap up our discussion of The Crimson Queen by revealing the consequences of climate engineering. Wondering why this episode is twice as long? Alec Hutson, author of The Crimson Queen, tells us the secret to coming up with cool titles and answers many of our well thought out questions. Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.
