Radio Active #85: War of the Pod People

by Ken Newquist / March 20, 2011

Graphic: Nuketown Radio Active

Spring is looming larger, but just incase it gets waylaid by a late-winter storm, I decided to have a spring-themed surprise party for my wife.

In geekier news, I started up a "Gamer Working Group" at my dayjob and re-launched my gaming group's GriffCrier.com web site. There are no netheads in this show, but don't worry -- you'll still be able to feed that net addiction with a round up of the podcasts I'm listening to.

Getting the Show

There are several ways to get the podcast:

Show Notes

  • Nuketown News
    • Spring Surprise
      • Surprised my wife with a Spring Garden Party, which will hopefully help her fend off the inevitable February blues.
    • Gamer Working Group
      • I started a new campaign at work, powered by Savage Worlds and taking place in The Day After Ragnarok setting.
      • We play once or twice a week over lunch. Fast and furious works well for the campaign, allowing us to get in a combat and some role-playing each session.
    • The GriffCrier Relaunched
      • My gaming group's web site has been relaunched as a portal for our member blogs (but you'll find plenty of campaign news and links to our ongoing campaign sites).
      • Useful experiment in running WordPress 3.x MultiSite, though I'm still finding more stuff broken at work than at home.
    • MLB At Bat 11
      • Speaking of baseball ... spring training is under way, and the MLB At Bat 11 app is available! Just the dose of spring that my geeky brain needed.
