Melonmancy Podcast

Wizards and watermelons! We play tabletop, video games, and talk about those things + more on our podcast. No filter.

Melonmancy Podcast will return in JANUARY 2023

This is a brief set of announcements at the beginning of the recording, followed by about 4 hours of unhinged drunken rambling with multiple guests (Including and and – thanks so much for coming!)

TL;DR on said announcements:

  • We are going on vacation again this year. Our next episode will be sometime in January!
  • You can find out when exactly we will return by following or joining our forum
    • There's no much to see on the forum right now, but we are keeping it up maybe forever so there will be thriving discussion there eventually

No amount of typing on this post about what we talked about this episode will do it justice. If you do choose to listen past the announcements do us a favor and with a modern podcasting app – such as Fountain please make clips of your favorite parts and post them!

See you next year!

This will probably be the last episode we record with Jitsi Meet. Long live Mumble
