episode 42: Grant Ellis on Streaming RPGs & Celebrating A Knight's Tale

Grant Ellis joins me to talk about his efforts to create unique livestream tabletop roleplaying game content with a diverse cast of performers. He talks about his game design efforts and how playing and streaming games like D&D are different processes. We spend the vast majority of the show talking about a shared passion, A Knight's Tale - a film that arrived in 2001 and continues to warm our hearts. We talk about why the film persists in our minds and devote attention to the wonderful cast, characters and themes in the film.
