We started producing shows as Today with a Techie 12 years, 1 months, 18 days ago. Our shows are produced by listeners like you and can be on any topic that "are of interest to Hackers". If you listen to HPR then please consider contributing one show a year. If you record your show now it could be released in 13 days.
The second session of Interface Zero RPG live play with Klaatu, Lobath, and Thaj.
This week, Chiawei and Syd reach Peter's apartment and do some quick detective work, and a little bit of minor bone-breaking.
If you're really keen to play, send Klaatu an email (Klaatu at the domain of this podcast, or member.fsf.org). The recording schedule is inflexible, Klaatu has oddly high standards for audio that he is inevitably compresses down to 64kbps, and the game has already started, but a new character or guest character is not out of the question!
No give-away this week, but we'll be giving a (digital) Pathfinder starter kit out next week.
I was partially inspired by Bitbox's really wonderful episode, "hpr2413: personal health care", to ramble on about the need for the HPR community to, maybe, start talking about a mental health crisis that touches pretty much everyone in the modern world: addiction.
If you're new to RPG and want to hear how it's done, or you're just bored and want to hear some nerds play through a cyberpunk adventure, this is for you! Also - for one lucky listener - we have an RPG starter kit. Listen for details.
Klaatu tried to fund art for a card game on Kickstarter. Missed the goal by 85%
This is a post mortem of how the Kickstarter went and where he may have gone wrong. Possibly you can learn from his mistakes. Possibly he has misdiagnosed his mistakes, and you are being misled. Choose wisely.
This is just a short "episode" wherein I ponder the nature of showmanship and razzle-dazzle regarding the success or failure of FOSS, and other projects that require collaboration. Your comments and opinions are ACTIVELY encouraged.
