Due to some incompetent conjuring on the part of the wizard, Weirdbeard, the episode of The Round Table that appeared in late September took place outside of our normal time-space continuum. Those who tuned into the aberrant transmission found that the regular hosts had been replaced by Dan, Chad, Dawn and Adam from the Fear the Boot podcast.
Rest assured that the appropriate counterspell has been cast (podcastus returnum!) and all has been set to right.
In fact, when the Cleveland contingent of The Round Table returned to our proper place, we found some shiny new recording equipment waiting for us! Where before Chris, Julia and I huddled around Chris’ MacBook like rain-drenched Scouts ’round a tiny campfire, we now record in style at the gloriously appointed Erie Vista Studio! We each have our own Audio-Technica DR-VX1 dynamic microphone on a sleek, black boom stand, all three of which are plugged into a shiny new Behringer Eurorack 1002 mixer.
What better way to break in the new equipment than by recording a brand new episode of The Round Table? This time out, we talked to podcaster, game designer and New York Times bestselling author, Tracy Hickman. Tracy is the co-creator of the Dragonlance RPG setting, co-author (with Margaret Weis) of nearly a dozen Dragonlance novels, and author of The Immortals, which is now available at Podiobooks.com. Tracy and his wife, Laura, co-authored the Bronze Canticles trilogy and co-host the Dragonhearth podcast.
The episode clocks in at nearly two hours and includes not only our discussion with Tracy, but response to listener feedback, the latest geeky recommendations from all four hosts and assorted tomfoolery.
