Grant Howitt is like opening the door to your home and letting in a force of nature with words and chat and insects and bees and honey and laughing and darkness and horror but not always rolling dice. 

We eventually talk about Heart - The City Beneath but we needed to talk about Grant first and so we touch on creativity in relation to mental health, and writing for masses, creating one pagers and why Martin should not be trusted to make the Honey Chilli Chicken. Just listen. Listen to it all and be jealous that I got to do this for a glorious hour.

Check out that graphic. 

I mean it looks awesome. 

I'm joined by Aaron A Wilson (The A is Silent but deadly) to chat about being creative and running an agency and then Aaron is just a filth monster, and there's a sad bit in the middle and Aaron curses, but it all turns out good in the end. 

You might want to check out Sovereign Skies, which is an intriguing looking game all about control and diplomacy and DOLPHINS!!! And if you can't see the dolphins, make sure you comment very loudly in the kickstarter link below. 

STAY TO THE END, BECAUSE IT'S FUNNY.

Richard is joined by all round nice guy Oliver Kinne, who took the most obvious name for a tabletop games blog, found that no one had bought the domain name, and decided to run with it and has gone on to produce a cornucopia of tabletop content. 

So naturally, we don't bother speaking about any of that but talk about his fascinating story growing up in West Germany, moving to the UK, and how he got into board games. 

Oliver is a genuinely lovely man to know and i hope you take the time to check out all of his marvellous contributions to the hobby.  He does more than we do!

Matt Rowe | Stephen Lockyer | Escapages |

Escapages

Richard is joined by the clever, witty, smart and sharp talking Matt Rowe and he brought along Stephen Lockyer to talk about their Escapages series of books, a series of highly interesting puzzle books which are available online. Their next book flatpak is a puzzle book based around a catalogue and it looks stunning. We had a lot of fun chatting, though warning that some of the audio is a little bit ropey in places. 

Please check out the links below.

Richard is joined by Debra Hoenig Parizek, who's late husband Dennis designed the Everyverse RPG ruleset. Debra has been playing RPGs for years and after her husband passed, she decided to release Everyverse to the masses for them to enjoy. It's a fascinating story, as Debra recently successfully funded the RPG on Kickstarter for its printing and now they are looking at making more people aware of it.
