Michael chats with Panzerde and Cyrano about Origins, the day after they got back from the show.

Actually, they both have rather officious sounding voices. If people aren't really paying attention, you MIGHT be able to convince them that you're on a conference call.

A well done podcast and not a single mention of Jack and Peach. Kudos.  O0

Oh yeah, we're supposed to try to avoid that, aren't we?

Nearly everyone in the booth at Origins, minus Cyrano, was an engineer of one sort or another. Next year we should probably put out a Swear Jar. Bet we could pay for all of the signs and swag that way.

And we were all on our best behavior, too. Sometimes you just can't f***king help it, ya know?

Just got around to listening to this. I really appreciated Doug's point about gaming being storytelling. That's definitely one of the biggest draws for me.
