A pleasure

By Rob Down in a Heap - Feb 06 2019
Read more
The most active of the OSR Anchorites gets plenty of calls from his pals, and the dialogue resulting is outstanding. Colin has a genuine, warm style, equal parts enlightening and touching, with a healthy dose of humor mixed in. It’s a pleasure to listen to, like hanging out with an old friend. Cheers!

Best OSR Anchorcast

By Hobbs665 - Nov 15 2018

I'm not sure how high the bar is set, but Spikepit is the best of them. He's got a sweet accent, thoughtful content, and the friendliest guy around. I appreciate Colin for diong this Anchorcast and I hope he keeps it up.
