These guys feel the need to talk quietly 90% of the time before suddenly swallowing the mic and yelling into it without any good use of compression or limiters. Role play is pretty fun. They're having a fun time. Also, what the hell's with the random reverb on a sentence or two and then nothing?

Gino normally does title card illustrations for our site. If you dig his art, he also has a long running webcomic up at pizzapranks.com. (I made the one we have now while Gino works out some technical difficulties. Ain’t it pretty?)

This week, however, music and title card are both by me, so please be kind.

If you make music that you want featured on the show please email it over to us or find me on twitter, we reach literally dozens of people each week and always need fresh cool music to make us sound cooler

You can leave us a voicemail at (508) 817-3408 or send us an email to gm@actualplay.network.

Andrew and I have another podcast, a monthly show called the GoldenAgeHorror.com podcast, which is an exciting look at horror movies from before 1979.
