Wow, can I get distracted! I recorded some interviews way back in MARCH that have just been laying around. Just call me A.D.D. boy!

I talk to Vince of Pinche Games (pinchegames.com) about Chimaera Con (chimaeracon.com) here in San Antonio. Don’t worry, you can go to NEXT year’s Con. If you are in the San Antonio area and love games, you will really enjoy this convention.

I talk with a gentleman about the Weird West Fest that is going to happen in December in Giddings, Texas. You can find out more at weirdwestfest.com.

AND, I interview William of Table Top Generals (thetabletopgenerals.com), a great group of guys. I started playing games with them after this interview, so, I can vouch for their “greatness”. Check them out for some awesome games!

Kaffeeklatsch with Howard Tayler, Schlock Mercenary web comic creator, WorldCon 2013

NOTE: This is a mostly unedited room recording. There may be some slightly strong language. Also, Howard keeps mentioning “the video”. I don’t do video podcasts. I don’t have the face for them. Howard, however, is on video a lot! So, no, you’re not missing anything.
