Episode 053: Commercialization of Larp

Hey Listenerd Friends,

 
On today's show we're talking about the commercialization and monetization of larp. We explore into the for-profit sector and share our thoughts. Apologies for the quality, Ron is moving and didn't have his full studio tp record in. We will be going back to the old set-up in the episode after next.

Episode 047: Absentia from the Players

Greetings Listenerds,

 
We got a special long episode today, where the Nerdcasters are talking about Absentia, a Nordic inspired larp run by Ron, Kirsten, and Nerdcast alumn Jimmy. It was a private full weekend game that dealt with heavy themes of life, death, and humanity. We discuss the impact of the game on the players and the experience of playing in a Nordic game in the NW. Enjoy!

Episode 045: Broken Stairs

Greetings Friends,

 
Today we're getting a little bit heavy as we talk about missing and broken stairs in role-playing communities. This is a very difficult subject that we're diving into and our hope is that we touched on some good points in our limited time. Trigger warning for mentions of sexual assault and heavy themes.
