Miracle of miracles, I actually managed to record two episodes of The Gamer Traveler today! Well, it was one and a quarter, but who’s counting. The actual episode is on Amsterdam, and instead of doing my usual segment of scripted history/travel info/gaming info, I basically rambled on while looking at a map of the city, jumping back and forth among various places I’ve visited. I think it came out very disjointed, but I’m gonna try to tighten it with editing. I just really wanted to get this episode out before Gen Con, and this was the only way to do it.
The second episode I recorded was a small special episode to be played at Gen Con. It’s kind of like Episode 0 in that it is an introduction to the show, but it is a bit better explained and references Gen Con as the place where the episode is being played. After the show I’ll release it into the feed as a curiosity.
Lastly, I just go the really bad news that Fear the Boot has been forced to withdraw as an ENnies nominee for Best Podcast on allegations of cheating/urging people to cheat. I think this is totally bogus, and I, as a voter, want to know what happened to prompt this action. I have more opinions on the matter, but it is late so I’ll save them for when I have more time and more information. Let me state, however, that I have a very sour taste in my mouth over this and I’m not happy at all.
