Podcast Producer/Editor


   

Lindsay Walks: When I learned that my stepsister Lindsay was planning to walk across the United States, I proposed and developed a podcast in which she would call me every week, and I would record and edit the calls and release them online.

Podcast Guest


I've been a guest on the following podcasts (and would love to be a guest on more!)


In December 2016, I joined the Actual Play D&D podcast 'Dice to Meet You', where I took on the character of Skullbutt the Bard, a small cat. My first appearance was in the 'Interlude 01' episode, which you can listen to here.

I've been writing songs for this podcast, and releasing them on an album called Dice to Meet You: Tales From the Goddess's Repose.
