This is where I’ll talk about podcasts I’m on, reviews that are published, and so on. If you’re unsure about trying out the game, you can read a review, read someone’s actual play, listen to me talk about it, or even listen to people play the game in actual play podcasts. If you know of something that should be here, but isn’t, then let me know.
Podcast / vidcast appearances
- I was interviewed on All Games Considered about Gen Con 2010.
- Brilliant Gameologists are another great group of people who have had me on or talked about me a bunch of times. Here’s an episode I appeared on after we went to I-CON together.
- Tim Rodriguez of Dice + Food + Lodging did an interview with me about the punk ideology and how games can change the world.
- Carl Bussler interviewed me on Flagons and Dragons about punk as a genre.
- GameSalute‘s video interview with me, conducted at Myriad Games in New Hampshire.
- Jennifer Wong is a really terrific interviewer and her show, The Jennisodes, covers the entire gameosphere. She interviewed me about my crazy ideas about how the idea of a “GM” doesn’t exist absent context of a particular game.
- I’ve been on The Podge Cast a number of times and I enjoy the hell out of it whenever I’m on. One time, we talked about how I was marketing the game, and another time where I came on to talk bullshit.
- Theory from the Closet is hosted by Clyde Rhoer, who is one of the best interviewers in roleplaying game podcasting. He interviewed me about Misspent Youth, marketing strategy, ashcans, and many other issues.
- The Voice of the Revolution was the “house podcast” of Indie Press Revolution. I did a segment for one episode where I talked to Kevin Weiser of The Walking Eye podcast about becoming an indie RPG street team.
- The Walking Eye is another great show. The structure of the show is usually that they play a game, record three episodes of them doing so and release those, review the game, then interview the designer. They also do some assorted interviews, such as the time they had Joshua A.C. Newman and I on for a discussion about abandoning games. They also interviewed me after playing and reviewing the game. Finally, here are the episodes I’m tagged on.
- Yellow Menace is a podcast about “movies, games, and other useless distractions.” Alex Mayo and Ed McW interviewed me on an episode.
Podcasts where the topic is Misspent Youth
- The Jank Cast is an amazing podcast out of Chicago. Each episode, they talk about some issue in gaming, and smartly. Which means I agree with them a lot. Also, they talk about my game a bunch. Rather than listing every episode that the game is mentioned on, here’s a search of their archives for “Misspent Youth“
- The Walking Eye’s episodes with the “Misspent Youth” tag
- A review by Gerald Cameron of Critical Hits.
- The Gassy Gnoll of Game Knight Reviews gives a sort-of review of the free PDF version of the game you can get over here, which mostly consists of explaining why I’m offering it for free by talking about how hard it is to read on screen.
- Giant Fire Breathing Robot‘s review, as well as the other articles about the game on the site (including APs and podcasts).
- Greg Costikyan of Play This Thing did a review of the ashcan (preview) version of the game.
