Put on your thinking caps, Junior Wizards! In this episode, thanks to @LeviathanFiles’ prompt, “Mr Jeans is \*5[= 3@\*/\>;’s manager. Wheelin’ and dealin’ to get them the best booking.

Prolific and influential game designer Avery Alder joins Alex to talk about re-entering game design with collaboration and care at the forefront. We also talk queerness, monstrosity, and kids in rpgs. Lots of other stuff too. It’s a good chat.
