Episode 48: Changing History and Dystopia Rising

Will is out again, so we brought Barb back for a big show. On today's show we talk about changing history for the better in your game, like removing extreme sexism and racism. Later in the show, Ron sits down with the folks from the new to the NW LARP, Dystopia Rising. DR is a great new post apocalyptic, high immersion, zombie game. After talking with Jeff and Bekkah, we are super excited for this game and we have the scoop on some juicy details. Fair warning, we get a little heavy on race and gender issues with the 1s segment so if that's not your thing, you can skip to the Dystopia Rising interview, because it is awesome!!!
