Meet Jo Winter, author of  “The Fall of Home“, “Light Bringers” and contributor to the currently live Kickstarter campaign “The Map of Is Not The Territory“.

Together we braved the dangers of the outside world. Hand sanitizer and microphones in hand we fended off the drones, footballs, swans and parrots which lurked in a London park to bring you this episode.

If you would like to try my game “Paris Gondo – The Life-Saving Magic of Inventorying“, you have several opportunities to do so: first as part of AlbaCon on October 3rd and 4th, second with The Gauntlet on October 5th.

See you next month for an episode with convention-goer extraordinaire Lloyd Gyan.

Stay safe.
