Mick Bradley edited The Round Table in record time and actually had the show posted less than twenty-four hours after we recorded. Mur Lafferty (Geek Fu Action Grip, I Should Be Writing) and Caroline (Gamer the Podcasting) brought their XX chromosomes to the table for a discussion centering around the role women play in the Hero’s Journey, the difference between the feminine and masculine heroic journeys, how the fairer sex is portrayed in popular fiction, how to create believable female characters when writing or creating RPGs, and how women and men differ in their approach to roleplaying games.

Season 2, Episode 6 of The Round Table is available for consumption at The House of the Harping Monkey. We recorded this on 03 May with The Mad Three from Gamer the Podcasting; the topic of discussion was LARPing with a little bit of the monomyth thrown in for good measure. If your eyes didn’t just glaze over, go download the episode, or add the feed to your podcatcher, already!
Last night Mick Bradley, Max Massey, Chris Miller and I recorded episode 2-4 of The Round Table podcast, with special guest host J.C. Hutchins. I expect the episode will be available for download in the next day or two.
J.C. Hutchins is the author of the podiobook 7th Son: Descent, a tale of assassination, conspiracy and cloning. Given the subject of my 2004 NaNoWriMo novel, Bubba, I suspected that this might be right up my alley, so I subscribed to 7th Son: Descent at Podiobooks.com. I’m three chapters into the book and it has not disappointed in the slightest. The story opens with the assassination of the President of the United States by a four-year-old boy and launches directly into the abduction of seven men from all walks of life who all turn out to be clones of an eighth man. How are the assassination and a top secret cloning project related? I have no idea, but J.C. Hutchins has got me right every author wants their audience: I am hooked and I want to find out what the hell is going on.
After we finished recording the show, Chris and I recorded some new bumpers for Mur Lafferty’s I Should Be Writing podcast and one for Dragon’s Landing that I really hope Chuck and Lonnie play in their next episode. We had a blast recording the thing, and I think it turned out really well.
Chris and I also began work on a little side project we’ve codenamed Free Eggroll. I’ll release details as we declassify them.
The latest episode of The Round Table has been posted over at The House of the Harping Monkey. If you want to hear three adults discuss the mythology of SpongeBob Squarepants and The Rocky Horror Show, head on over to the site and download the episode. Better yet, subscribe to the podcast with your favorite podcatcher (I use iTunes). You do have a podcatcher, right?
Chris Miller of Unquiet Desperation invited me to join in the discussion at The Round Table, a podcast from the House of the Harping Monkey. Mick Bradley, host of The Round Table was foolish enough to invite me back and I think I’m going to take him up on it.
The show we recorded tonight should be available for download by the end of the week. It will kick off season two of The Round Table, and if you want to hear three guys discuss the darker side of mythology, give it a listen. I’ll post a reminder and links once I know the show has been posted.
