After much preparation, a great leviathan lurches its head from the dark waters of podcasting. Ken and Robin Talk About Stuff, the new podcast featuring Pelgrane Press stalwarts Kenneth Hite and Robin D. Laws, is now live. Bookmark its popping site, as festooned by the finest cartoon stylings of John Kovalic, whose Dork Tower is a Ken and Robin sponsor in perpetuity. Ken and Robin will range far and wide across the fields of gaming, history, movies, culture, and time itself. But given their various works in progress, you can expect regular scoops, hints and insider skinny on all things Pelgrane. Listening to the podcast will refresh several of your investigative ability pools, guaranteed.

Grab the inaugural episode to hear us discuss Night’s Black Agents, English perambulations, the role of the GM in contemporary game design, and the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.

There is a Castle Bravo actual play report here at Nerdbound, with some excellent feedback from Bill White, the writer.

The RPG Countdown podcast is the network chart of rpg popularity, measuring weekly sales on One Book Shelf  (rpgnow.com and dtrpg.com). Rough Magicks and Trail of Cthulhu both have a second appearance in the charts, partly due to the very succesful 15% sale we had last week. Ken talks about both products. This is worth listening to because Ken is so self-effacing when talking about Trail, you might even think he was Canadian.
