In which: We discuss Going Postal, The Virtues of New Protagonists, Tabletop RPGs, and Whether Delaware is Real. CW: for obvious reasons, we say "moist" a lot.
Night Watch may be the pivotal Vimes book, but Going Postal is probably the pivotal Ankh-Morpork book--and the pivotal Vetinari book. It's a great read in terms of plot and writing, and it has a diamond-sharp message.
We're joined this month by friend of the show and game design hero Kevin Kulp!
