Nerdy Show Network – Weekly Review: 1-7 March 2014
RPG Month is under way, with even more goodness coming soon! In keeping with the monthly theme, this month’s donation drive is another RPG One-Shot $upport Drive. In the event that you’re having trouble picking which RPG we should play, below is a list of all the Character Pitches from various personalities around the network. So if you aren’t partial to a particular system, but love listening to our RPG adventures, you can instead choose to back a character you’d like to hear played!
RPG 1-Shot Pitches:
- The Dresden Files & Star Wreck – by Hex and Jonathan
- Fiasco by Doug
- Firefly & Shadowrun – by Adam and Brandon
- Star Wreck & Gamma World by John and Josh
- Mass Effect by Colin and Adam
- TMNT and Mouse Guard by Doug and Chan
Also, in the near future we’ll be interviewing the following:
Clare Evans – from the band YACHT, resurrected the legendary sci-fi magazine, OMNI
Neil Harbisson – the world’s first government recognized cyborg – he was number 3 on our top 20 list last year!
Mark Frauenfelder – Editor-in-chief of MAKE Magazine and co-editor for Boing Boing
If you’d like to submit a question to ask these awesome people, you can do so, here. We’ve already spoken with David X Cohen, Executive Producer and writer of Futurama – look forward to his interview, coming Monday!
