Episode 147 – Dreamation, Elation, and the Invitation

In this episode, Daniel and I talk about how Phase 10 made his kids cry. We talk about the InnRoads team’s trip to Dreamation in Morristown, NJ – including Smirk & Dagger’s upcoming games, talk to folks from Civic Games about how they’re trying to get people to think about how we live and work together in the world expressed through gaming, and a few reasons why I think Barker’s Row is a must pick up when it shows up on kickstarterĀ on March 28th.

We also talk about the value of invitation – allowing others to initiate the conversation rather than searching for the right way to inject it ourselves.

Episode 136 – The Dignity of Listening to Their Stories

10931314_10153107041949610_3507401325325210031_nThis episode almost didn’t happen. A technical issue totally friend the audio for one of your hosts, causing the entirety of the initial recording we did for this episode to go into the trash. What was the worst part was that this wasn’t discovered until right before editing and posting the podcast on schedule. In spite of all this, we were able to get something recorded and present a special guest appearance on the podcast.

We asked Jeffrey Allers about the ministry he has in Berlin, Germany, where, among other things, he is ministering to the Syrian refugees in his city. After a brief update on games I’ve been playing and what’s going on in the news, this episode is focused on hearing how games provide dignity and minister to those who are refugees.
