Lots of discussion of the news this week: Free RPG Day, Indie Press Revolution Sold, Games Workshop Financials, and Origins. Also, listener voicemail about why Ben is wrong (again)! In fact, we have everything BUT the interview we promised with Randall Bills, who was swamped with Origins preparations.

Next Show: July 2nd. Origins Awards and show recap. Happy Gaming!
I asked Pete Adkinson one year at a GenCon seminar about the Magic Championships on ESPN2 and he said that Wizards had to PAY to be on there… so that wasn’t ESPN2 being desperate but rather advertising.
I guess that’s how Texas Hold ‘Em blew up!
That is not surprising. In fact, I am ashamed that it did not occur to me! I’ll try to mention it on the next show. Thanks!
(I don’t think they’ve done it for some time, so I will assume that, as a marketing effort, it did not pan out long term)
I feel like an idiot, but what’s the RSS URL for this show? I can’t seem to find it anywhere.
