Rolling Dice & Taking Names Gaming Podcast is hosted by two long time friends, Tony and Marty. Since 2012, we have released over 135 bi-weekly episodes with discussions on table top games, hobby news, interview with designers and conversations with many of our fellow board gaming friends.
The whole focus of our show it to provide entertainment to anyone who enjoys discussions centered around tabletop games. Many times we'll have 'squirrel' moments where focus could jump to any topic, but we always get back to our passion in board games.
We have several segments that we'll use in our episodes such as:
In addition to our regular episodes we have two special annual episodes:
In addition we'll do special episodes throughout the year including recordings from gaming conventions, game shows and anything else we think will be entertaining and informative for the listener.
The purpose of this campaign is to fund some of the costs to run the show. In our 2017, our server costs increased by 250%. Our costs went up due to increased downloads, which is a great but these costs were not budgeted for the fiscal year. To further enhance our audio we want get better soundproofing in our studios and update our mics so that the listener can enjoy our southern drawl at the highest possible quality.
In addition, we are looking at getting some video and lighting equipment that we can use for a special YouTube videos.
However, regardless of the funds we raise, we still continue to release bi-weekly episodes as we have for the past 5 years.
