10-The Aethervox: What the Fluff?

For our tenth episode we have a real mixed bag: we have an interview with David McGuire, author of many of the stories in Twisting Fates, about what it’s like to write fluff for Malifaux; “The Other White Meat,” a continuation of Mr. Magpie’s Cemetery Circus story arc; the second part of our fluff segment with special guest co-host Shawn Kehoe, who also tells us all about Hal Con, Halifax’s sci-fi convention (we will be there, and Ian will be running Malifaux demos). In “The Man Comes Around,” Rathnard discusses his stolen Gen Con order, avatars, and his minion-of-the-month Jack Daw. And we have the usual blabber about Wyrd’s new releases, game reports and mindless gossip. Plus, we announce our first ever contest!

Special thanks this month go out to Chris at CanHammer for his generous and unexpected donation to the show. If you’re interested in Warhammer Fantasy, 40K or Flames of War, check out his podcast.

Hope you enjoy the show.
