I discovered this podcast yesterday and basically binged it. Now I need more.

I think this is an extremely interesting idea for a podcast in general, but this episode was particularly interesting for me (in fact, I’m planning to set aside one evening to re-listen it and take notes).

Thanks so much! That’s the best compliment. I was lucky I had great guests!

I had a lot of fun recording this conversation with Chris. It was super interesting to discover where does Electric Bastionland comes from, to learn about the thought process behind it.

In this episode we talk about Fear, a strange fascination with the London Underground Railway, a rural English county nobody knows about, one hundred failed careers, miniature wargames, and Intergalactic Bastionland, the art of Alec Sorensen.

Another of my favorite authors on a podcast I’m really starting to love. I hope you know I’m listening to all of those episode with a notebook in my hands, frantically jotting down notes on game design ideas.

I love the notebook. That’s what these episodes are made for!!! I’d love to see pictures of your notebook with the notes. I mean, if you’d like to. Hope that’s not too forward to ask. I’m not sure why I’m asking this, your message just puts me in a good mood.

The Lost Bay Podcast Episode #5 is live - Guest Vi Huntsman Collabs without permission

Vi Huntsman runs a Crazy youtube channel called Collabs without permission. They do great video reviews of TTRPG zines. In March they shared a review of the game Mothership filmed at Bonneville Salt Flats. It’s a super brilliant review of the game, and it looks amazing, like a short Sci-Fi film.

Vi has been collecting zines for years. We did the interview via a conferencing app. And as we were recording I could see behind Vi shelves literally filled with zines.

In this episode, we talk about Vi’s collection of Zines, a romanesque encounter with Malaysian designer Zedeck Siew, a Dada clown army, Kickstarter, Mixam, risograph printing, and a possible future of RPG zines.
