Episode 110 – Jeremy Crawford Interview
(a.k.a Illusionary Dragons)

Lead Rules Designer for D&D, mind behind Sage Advice and Unearthed Arcana, and all round man on the scene for all D&D books, the lads were delighted to have Jeremy Crawford on for an interview. An insight into his daily work, lots of detail on the upcoming Eberron release, and much more, including advice for new DMs and some hints on the future of D&D.

Regrettably there were some technical recording issues this time and so the sound losses are down to the vagaries of internet recording, rather than deliberate Dalek impressions from any guests or hosts.

Bonus Episode – Robin Laws at The Kraken 2019
(a.k.a You and I Can Go Fight Some Lesser Podcasts)

He was last at The Kraken two years ago, and so when Robin Laws returned in 2019, it was only right that we tried to get some time to talk to him again about what he’s been up to, reminisce about some old products and get some hot tips on producing better content for aspiring writers everywhere. The Yellow King, Glorantha, Earthdawn, Feng Shui, Gumshoe, etc., the list of credits is too long to list, so sit back and relax as we let Robin do the talking.
