  1. This week, without Howard, Dan, Brandon, and special guest Jody Lynn Nye talked about how to be funny, at least in writing. Dungeons & Dragons, DragonCon, “Nothing is more boring than talking about humor.” Telling jokes to sociopaths. Aunts who come in threes. And quite a bit more, that you can read in the transcript available now in the archives.

  2. I heard Jody at LTUE and picked up her View from the Imperium on Audible last month. Finished it a week ago and couldn’t wait for my next credit. So good!!
