One Response to “Episode 6 – Next Week”

This is not spam. This is a legitimate comment.

This episode is a fucking travesty. As a new GM, I'm seeking out podcasts that can help me be a better one, and I was excited to hear some ideas, advice, tips, and hear the experiences of some established players on this subject, which was supposed to be "First Sessions".

Instead it was a bunch of idiot rambling without focus or coherence. When one of the first things said in the "we're finally on-topic" section is "I don't really have any advice for how to do a good first session", you make me feel like I've completely wasted my time.

The only good thing about this podcast was that you labeled all the parts of it so I could skip to the part I was interested in.

The worst part was that once I got there, you STILL didn't talk about the topic. What little discussion there was was general, vague, and obvious.

Put a little more effort in and you may have something. As it is, I'm not interested in listening to this again.
