The latest episode of The Round Table features listener feedback, special guests James and Jessica Peveler, tips for incorporating “The Belly of the Whale” into roleplaying games, and a lively, multi-faceted discussion on when and if player characters should be allowed to die. Also on deck: way too many chupacabra references.
Normally, Chris Miller and I use a Samson C01U condenser microphone on Chris’ Windows XP laptop. In episode 2.9, we were using the microphone built in to Chris’ new MacBook, and it sounds pretty damn good.
I don’t know what sort of equipment Master Misfit Mick Bradley is using, but our virtual round table is made possible by Skype. Mick and Chris both record the show, just in case there is an audio problem in either Louisville (Mick’s home base) or Eastlake (site of Chris’ tricked out studio). Mick typically takes a couple of days to edit the show, removing some (but not all, else my voice would never be heard) extraneous crap, mixing in the musical cues, promos and bumpers. This particular show was recorded Friday evening and released Monday morning.
Head on over to The Harping Monkey and grab episode 2.9, if it’s not already in your podcatcher. While you’re at it, grab episode 2.8, which Mick and Chris recorded while I was on vacation. They cover a lot of stuff, but I really wish I’d been able to participate in their discussion of X-Men: The Last Stand.
