Interview Episode 1 – Ryan Dancey

Since starting this podcast, Fear the Boot has made contact with quite a few professionals in the gaming market.  Rather than let these opportunities go to waste, we decided to start a new interview series.  For our kick-off show, we chat with Ryan Dancey about his experience working for Wizards of the Coast, the data […]

Bonus Episode 13 – gamer shame

Like all Fear the Boot bonus episodes, this show is neither edited nor on our usual subject.  So if this is your first time here, we recommend checking out a regular episode first.

Bonus Episode 12 – pipes and cigars

This episode was intended to be a warm-up for Mike, a new host we’re bringing on at FTB to help out with several new efforts we’re preparing to launch.  However, true to form, we spend most of the show chasing tangents, the largest of which is a discussion on pipes and cigars. Mike was a […]

Episode 35 – roleplaying game art

Before I get to the show notes, a listener asked us to mention an upcoming gaming con.  I didn’t get the note in time for the recording, so I’ll mention it here instead.  The con is Chattacon in Chattanooga, Tennessee, January 26 – 28.  You can find more information at Chattacon.org. With that done, on […]
