Some of you may be wondering what I’ve been doing. No? Okay, didn’t think so. But here it is anyway.

| March 9, 2009

I recorded a D&D Authors Panel at Genghis Con XXX (2009). The guys at the Podge Cast were kind enough to host it on their feed since it isn’t really relevant to this show. But in case you came here looking for it, or you just listen to Story Shtick because you love my voice, [...]
