This episode is “Not Safe For Work.” Of course none of these episodes are safe for work. If this is your first time listening, congratulations. Anyway, use headphones or at least look around a bit to see if your co workers can hear.
We explain what this podcast is about. We also offer our two major warnings:
- We use naughty words and describe adult situations
- This podcast uses “humor”
This is not a regular episode. However is a good place to start listening. Listen to this episode first and then one of our regular episodes.I) We lead with some warnings.
Q: Why all the warnings?
A: Much of the criticism leveled at the show is from people who have not listened. And in fact never will listen because this is not their type of show. Not liking a “type” of show is perfectly natural. But if you would not listen to a comedian, like our patron saint George Carlin, don't complain that our show is too much like him. Similarly, if you don't think George Carlin, Lewis Black or Lambchop are funny, you are not going to like this either.
I am not saying all this to bring you down. I am putting it all out there so you stop bringing other people down.II) Then we talk about the podcast, afterschool special style
The highlights: We are trying to “Build a Community.” Our aim is to bring new people to the hobby, introduce people to new games and to move people along in their understanding of the hobby.III) Our Mission statements.
We sat down and said “here are our goals for our podcast” then we worked with those goals for two years. During that time they grew and evolved. We discovered how important some topics are and how unimportant others are.
Now we present these topics so you can provide feedback. Are we meeting these goals? Are we not? What could we do better? And so forth.
Listen to the episode for all the information, but here is a list that summarizes:
- We are trying to be informative and helpful.
- We seek to help new gamers and help old gamers branch out.
- We talk about gaming theories.
- We want people to get out and play.
- We focus on adult level game play.
- We want you to play games well.
- We want to grow “the” community and “our” community.
- We offer useful honest reviews.
- We seek to be entertaining.
This list is the most important part for you guys.
Do you think we meet these goals? Do you understand these goals?
Is there something else we could do?
