Don't just read about D&D's latest news and announcements -- listen to them as well! And where better to find inside information than from the very halls of Wizards of the Coast.

In this episode—usurper! Bart Carroll pitches in as host, along with your player-in-chief ("don’t call her an ombudsman, even though it's exactly the same thing"), Shelly Mazzanoble. First up, Chris Tulach enters the studio to discuss D&D Organized Play in 2009, and a little of what folks can expect in 2010—starting at D&D Experience. Then Shelly interviews DDI's Chris Champagne about roles, responsibilities… and going into labor in the middle of a game session. Finally, Bart and Shelly bounce a few questions off each other, about Facebook, Twitter, the D&D Community—and reports of another celebrity's former D&D days (hint: Bears, Beets, Battlestar Galactica).

All that, plus we completely mispronounce "potion miscibility" and play: Where in the world is Chris Perkins off to now?

What is Podcasting?

Podcasting is delivering audio and video content on demand so that it can be enjoyed at the user's convenience. The main benefit of podcasting is that listeners can sync content to their media player and take it with them to listen whenever they want to. But they're not just for iPods...the files are ready to watch or listen to on just about any computer.

About the Hosts

A handsome head and torso sit atop Bart Carroll's snaky trunk. This editor-in-chief has no legs, but travels in a snakelike mode along the ground. He has huge bat wings. His tail is barbed and drips poison. Bart's arms are strong and hairy, ending in paw-like hands. He does get a kick from Chris Champagne, and all he wants for Christmas is a spiedie.

Every year at this time, Shelly Mazzanoble can be found in front of her television, crying for the misfit toys. She would gladly accept a Charlie-in-the-box and a bi-polar rag doll. Read more of Shelly's work at her Confessions of a Full-time Wizard column.
