Acquisitions Inc. The Series

If you enjoy Dungeons & Dragons, and real play podcasts, and video podcasts … might I direct your attention to the new video cast of Acquisitions, Inc. The Series. From Penny Arcade and Wizards of the Coast, this continues the adventures of Acquisitions, Incorporated, which has been going on for 8 years in podcast form. This brings the action to life as we watch the real play of the four adventurers and Chris Perkins, the greatest DM ever.

Each episode is around 30 minutes long. Ep. 1 is the setup for the adventure. Ep. 2 is nothing but planning on how they’re going to complete their quest. Ep. 3, around the 9 minute mark, the adventure begins. Ep. 4 is some good role-play. But Ep. 5 is probably one of the best cliffhangers of podcast cliffhangers. Awesome show if you hang in there and let it build up.

Does contain strong language at times.

Sideways Into Darkness #1: Work Burnout Discussion

My first episode created with the on-the-go Opinion app for the iPhone. In this one, I quickly run down one of the main reasons I’m feeling a little burnt out on my job. If you have about 8 minutes to spare, give it a listen and let me know what you think.

For regular visitors – yes, I have done a couple of podcasts in the past. Since it’s been so long since the last one, I’m relaunching the whole thing with this new app. Raw footage, minimal editing done within the app, no frills. Just a quick 10 minutes or so of opinion and talk. I’m working on a way to better distribute for the one or two that might actually want to give it a listen. Opinion App supposedly offers extremely easy iTunes Podcast Directory listing. We’ll see about that! 🙂

I hope to do better with the second episode, as far as posting. Must learn more about the app’s features. In the mean time, if you’re interested, please feel free to visit the link below for my official episode one relaunch!
