60: Our History with the OSR

Ahead of our first reviews of OSR products and more OSR content starting next year, we thought it’d be good to give our history with the OSR to help put future reviews and discussions into context.

This episode replaces the planned interview with Sean McCoy, which we hope to conduct in the next episode or two.

58: GUMSHOE Cthulhu Reviews

In Episode 58, we review not one, but two games! Trail of Cthulhu and Fall of Delta Green! These games both use the GUMSHOE system by Robin D. Laws and were written by Kenneth Hite. This follows our interview with Kenneth in episode 52 – check that out first, because it will help to put this review in context.

Matt has also flicked through the physical book in his accompanying visual review over on our YouTube channel – follow this link: mbcast.co/youtube58
