One thought on “Episode 36: Self Publishing, or Making a Throne of Books

  • Scarecrow3

    I’ve been listening to your podcast, though I’m very far behind, and I’ve just listened to the podcast(s) on edition wars. (Yes, I’m that far behind). I’m glad you dared to take on this subject, and I think you did a fantastic job of presenting the merits and flaws without devolving into a “You’re a poopy-head” level of disagreement. I’m hoping I can convince you to do this again, only this time an edition war based on Classic World of Darkness and New World of Darkness, or Shadowrun 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th edition the various Star Wars table-top editions or maybe even Joel or Mike. Uh, that last doesn’t really fit, not an RPG.

    Having an adult, and reasoned discussion, as you did with D&D edition wars, would be nice.

    I’m looking forward to listening to even more of your podcast and really looking forward to your actual plays.
