There Will Be Games

Josh Look (He/Him)
Staff Podcaster

One night during the summer of 1997, Josh Look's cool uncle who owned a comic shop taught him how to play Magic the Gathering. The game set off his imagination in a way that he could not sleep that night, and he's been fascinated by games ever since. He spent many afternoons during his high school years skipping homework to play Dungeons & Dragons and paint Warhammer minatures, going on to discover hobby board games in his early 20s. He's been a writer for Fortress Ameritrash and is the creator and co-host of the geek culture podcast, The Wolfman's Lounge. He enjoys games that encourage a heavy amount of table talk and those that explore their themes beyond just their settings.

Boy, a lot of analysis in this one. I think you recorded one drink too early.

I'll mention that I paused at 38:23 and when it restarted the first words from Josh were "it's the satisfaction of seeing your dick get thicker" and that caught me off guard a bit. Luckily it was in headphones.

"DECK", Sag. He said "DECK". We were not playing a "dickbuilder", but I digress. . .

As for drinking more before we record, I'm up for that. It'll be just like playing with the band.

Sorry, I had a brief lapse of FATCast there.
