Episode 101: Digital Media that Keeps Us Coming Back

This week, Andi and Lise talk about their current fave podcasts and other digital media that keeps them engaged and gets them through these times. 

Lise

YouTube channel Punished Props Academy, which is a how-to on awesome cosplay with Bill and Brittany Doran. 

Podcast Tenfold More Wicked, on Exactly Right Network. Historic true crime hosted by author and journalist Kate Winkler Dawson. 

Dungeons and Dragons podcast Critical Role, which features voice actors and epic campaigns. Available as streaming video, on YouTube, and as a podcast. And so much more. 

Join the Party, a collaborative storytelling and role-playing podcast, also D&D-related. 

Andi: 

Still a faithful listener of My Favorite Murder on the Exactly Right Network a true crime comedy podcast that has become an amazing community. (Lez Geek Out! covered MFM in show #45

In The Thick, a podcast on the Futuro Media Network about “politics, race and culture from a POC perspective.” Hosted by Andi’s all-time fave journalist Maria Hinojosa and fellow journalist Julio Ricardo Varela. 

Making Gay History, a podcast that features interviews and oral histories with people who have been involved with LGBTQ history/LGBTQ civil rights history. 

TransLash podcast, Futuro Media Network. Hosted by journalist Imara Jones, the podcast deals with news, politics, culture, and stories about and by trans and nonbinary folx. 

Shout-outs: Lise has been playing a board game called Eldritch Horror based on the fiction of Lovecraft and inspired by board game Arkham Horror. Complicated but instructions are easy to parse and it’s hella fun. Andi has been watching Acorn TV and really enjoys My Life Is Murder, an Australian crime drama starring LUCY LAWLESS as a retired cop who ends up consulting on investigations. Did she mention LUCY LAWLESS. Great characters, great dialogue, good stories. 

Episode 35: Interview with Amanda McLoughlin of the Join the Party podcast

Andi and Lise totally fangirled over Amanda McLoughlin, but they still did manage to chat with her about one of her cool-ass projects, “Join the Party,” a collaborative storytelling and roleplaying podcast in which four friends create a story together, chapter by chapter. Everyone from seasoned players to total beginners can enjoy this Dungeons & Dragons gameplay, with adventure, intrigue, drama, magic, and the chance to follow diverse characters.

According to the Bello (podcasting) Collective, Join the Party has “gargoyles, robots, queerness, political intrigue, and a whole lot of sound design.” JTP also has introductory episodes to teach new listeners how to play D&D, and they also have interviews with innovators who are pushing the game forward.

Amanda McLoughlin is a producer, founder of the production collective Multitude, a business builder, and old-school internet creator from New York who some of you may know as one of the co-hosts of the fabulous mythology, folklore and legends podcast, “Spirits.”
