  1. I will be working when the live podcast airs but I'll catch up on it later! I haven't had the chance to check out your podcasts yet so I look forward to starting with the Cthulhu topic. I'm a long-time Lovecraft fan and Call of Cthulhu player and enjoy all things Cthulhu, except the insanity thing. - N20 Games :)
