  1. Thanks for another awesome podcast episode!
    See you at Gary Con

  2. Wow, just caught up to this mailbag episode, and I must say I’m disappointed to hear another knee-jerk defense from a privileged white-man (I.e Joe Goodman). Instead of taking an opportunity to critically look at the talent pool he cherry-picks from he uses typical bootstrap theory rhetoric to justify his power. I was keen on this game when I recently delved into its rule set, but now I’m rethinking my initial enthusiasm due to the creator’s comments. As head of company he sets the tone for not just his publishing business but also those proselytizing “his” work. Honestly how much effort would it have taken to not respond in a defensive and challenging manner, but rather use this opportunity to broaden ones exposure to creative talent? I applaud Judge Jeff for his eloquent rebuttal. What an inspiring way to talk to Power! I haven’t given up on DCC yet, but I’m certainly not as interested in submitting artwork as I once was.

      Sorry Ryan, it was probably easy to mistake “Judge Jobe” for “Judge Joe”.. but the email at the start was not from Joe Goodman but rather from former Spellburn host Judge Jobe.

      • Well now I am embarrassed, and truly sorry for mis-targeting my ire! My apologies (not for my reaction, just that I misfired). I did not intend to defame or otherwise malign the character of anyone undeserving of such criticism. I will be sure to listen more thoroughly in the future to avoid such mistakes. Thank you for not cruely mocking me (though I suppose some may be in order as my penance).

      • Julian Bernick says:

        Well I get it Ryan, it’s easy to mis-hear “Judge Jobe” as “Judge Joe” — for future reference, we will almost always refer to Mr. Goodman simply as… “THE DARK MASTER”!!!
