Episode 10 - Better Living through RolePlaying

Episode 10 - Better Living through Role Playing

There was recently an article on that compared Weight Watchers with RPGs. I think it is an entirely valid comparison, and is probably one type of role playing that appeals to more women than men. Liz and I chatted about other ways in which Role Playing can make other boring but necessary parts of life more appealing to other demographics.
Also, I managed to render Liz speechless with derision and disbelief at the revelation that some people sometimes cheat in RPGs...

After the show we had a bit of a chat about how it's great that people can use Role Playing to improve their lives... but we figure it's probably equally as important that we improve our Role Playing experience by actually *having* a life.
What do you think?
