Looks like I’m leaving my most-regular RPG campaign right in the early-middle of its second season.
I’m trying to get some other shit going with a regular in-person game of friends playing something we’ve all decided upon. Monster of the Week I got into because it was a schedule-friendly PbtA experience. Things have changed quite a bit in my life since then, (let alone my RPG hobby of roughly 1 year).
Things continue to change, with the redistribution of digital content only in its nascent stages. That is to say, twitter poems, wordpress stories, instagram sketches, and some kind of sound thing. Maybe a podcast, or 30 second songs once a week.
Re: podcast. I’m thinking highly informal, street interviews of nameless Torontonians. Entirely contextual, open questions with conversational follow-ups. A few minutes to rant or describe their life, share an anecdote, whatever. It’s a podcast they’ve never heard of (doesn’t yet exist) and would have, I hope, no bearing upon anybody’s life.
Rather, we’d have to have a release form, so we’d have to have their name and signature. Wouldn’t have to broadcast either, though.
And then a sketch to go alongside, as the episode art. Local Toronto music for intro/outro, put out a few minutes a week.
Tougher in winter months but not impossible.
Or maybe it’s a 25 minute episode once a month? Hard to say. Multiday process, gathering interviews, then editing. Would require one additional piece of gear, too: the field recorder. Amazon, meet Mastercard. Christ!
So if that sounds like something you’d like to see (hear), leave a comment below! Tell me what you like and what you don’t, I’m interested.
