Fear the Boot » Podcasts


Nov 29, 2012

If you need an extra dose of Fear the Boot this week, Dan was a guest on two other podcasts.  First, he appeared on Saving the Game to talk about the moral dimension of folklore and re-imagining tabletop fantasy in a monotheistic paradigm.  Second, he appeared on Pros & Cons to talk about the nitty gritty of hosting a convention.

As a side note, while Pros & Cons has a similar “no politics, no religion” policy to our own, Saving the Game is a Christian podcast.  It’s not aggressive toward other worldviews, but consider this fair warning that it does carry an overtly religious perspective.
