Over the extra-long episode, we talk about how to break into the RPG business, the importance of chronicling the history of RPGs, how EN Publishing got the license for Judge Dredd and the Worlds of 2000 AD, producing a podcast, the Alien franchise, and a lot, lot, LOT more! Plus we have a brand-new sketch written by Shane!

Peter, unfortunately, was unable to speak due to some deal with a sea witch taking his voice.
