A community driven podcast about the stories we make while playing the games we love on, around, and under the gaming table. This podcast includes: stupid stories, a stupider host, dumb gaming news, elevator pitches for games, and some inside perspectives about running a game company. Join Alan Gerding and Sean McCoy (creators of the hit game "Two Rooms and a Boom"), along with a ragtag community of tabletop friends as they discuss pretty much anything that is remotely related to board games ...
 
This page is dedicated to driving a conversation for choral musicians with the PHILOSOPHY of Choral Music at the heart of every post and podcast episode. Topics will be wide ranging from the technical aspects of our jobs and careers all the way to the artistic interpretations and values that make us who we are as artists. Join me in this conversation in which I hope we can learn from each other.

Perplexing Ruins is an illustrator and a writer. This episode might be a little different from the previous ones, maybe a little longer, and a little more intimate. Because Perplexing is a friend. He is one of the first members of our little indie RPG scene that I’ve met. In this heartfelt episode, we talk about ancient German castles, gouache pain…

Who is in the Choral Cool Kids Club? Our current rubric is based almost entirely on two factors. What degree do you have? And what level of choir do you direct? That’s not enough. One of the hot items of choral discussion recently has been “Choral Elitism.” I have done episodes on the show about it, Chris Maunu has written some great blogs, and cou…
 
For the Midsummer installment of the show, I am encouraging you to take a professional development break from your summer fun, not to “do work,” but to begin thinking ahead. To start hoping, dreaming, and scheming for your BEST academic year yet. In fact, I believe that in order to be a a”professional educator,” the summer must include this type of…
 
“During a G8 meeting in July 2001, outside the golden cage of the city center where the most powerful men in the world gathered to decide the future of the planet, Genova became the scene of a brutal repression of the police against 300,000 protesters. An attack that was aimed to shut down the ‘Seattle Movement’, which was born 2 years before, for …
 
“An uphill walk on a rocky gravel path on the Eastern Alps usually results in one step ahead and two steps back. The rocks are sometimes the size of a foot, edgy and not yet smoothened by their long journey to the sea. They keep rolling below the shoe as if they were water – or glass, judging from their sound – making it hard to proceed. These rock…
 
“A few weeks ago, my five-year-old daughter spotted two pieces of straw poking through an air vent in our bathroom. She didn’t think much of it until we heard the first chirping. Unable to believe our luck, we tiptoed around the invisible nest like besotted parents, never daring to switch on the light. We spoke only in whispers and exaggerated mime…
 
Over the past year, I began to notice a breath of fresh air in the online choral discourse in the form of Reginal Wright. Like many of you, I have used Facebook to network with other choral directors that I don’t know in real life. This has benefits for me as a Podcast host, but can be a challenge on a personal level. Reginal, however, stood out to…

Singers often have the mentality that if they go to the audition and don’t get the gig, they have failed. Choral directors often feel that if someone doesn’t hire them for the tenure track, or the honor choir gig, then they have sufficiently been told “no.” “I guess this isn’t for me after all.” The happy reality, is that this is a mindset you can …

“This transit began on Monday, May 24, when the recorder, a Tascam DR-07x, was put in the mail from Bloomington, Indiana, to Beverly Shores, Indiana. The recorder was apparently accidentally turned on, and the record button pressed, through a padded envelope and a layer of bubble wrap, at some point in the transit. It recorded for over twelve hours…

I say it’s steering them. And I think that’s bad news. I believe that Social Media has a tremendous upside and potential for good. But only if it is reflective of the common humanity that we experience when we are in person. My concern is that this has been reversed. That, as we begin to return to in person activities, we will have centered our soc…

The trick is that everyone is making different n…
