Industry Pro, Keith Curtis gives an interview about RPG maps on Fear the Boot (http://feartheboot.libsyn.com/)...I'm at work and have not listened to it yet. Hopefully he's given us a plug!

I downloaded it and listened to it (after running it though the change tempo filter in Audacity to speed it up 50%)

Here is a summary (times referenced back to the normal speed program :) ):
0:00:00 general babble
0:22:00 mapping discussion starts
0:24:00 overland/world mapping discussion
0:28:00 -balance vs. detail
0:31:00 -inspiration & worldbuilding basics
0:41:00 city mapping discussion
0:45:00 - locations
0:50:00 battlemaps (main decision is fighting area vs non-fighting area)
0:56:00 software discussion

No CG plug that I could hear

Bah! Ah well, maybe they'll interview Arcana soon!

No fair! he plugged a barbershop quartet site! Keith...Keith! Oh oh oh!

What is the overlap between barbershop quartets and RPG mappers anyway? :)

I am profoundly sorry. Believe it or not, I wrote down on my notes of things to bring up, this wonderful site. Somehow I managed to go through the entire podcast without plugging it. Stupid, since this really is a fantastic resource. It is highly likely that I will be on a future episode. If this happens, rest assured I will try to work in a plug somewhere.

mea maxima culpa.

Fear the Boot strives to maintain a balance between banter and content, since their demographics seem to indicate that their audience is split down the middle on which they prefer. That was part of the banter/human interest portion.

No worries, Keith I was just joshing. I'm a real FTB fan (which I found through DMoTR) and I like the banter and the RPG stuff. It was a good interview. How do you avoid saying 'er' when you do these things? I'd be saying it a lot but all of you sounded so fluent. Still, I shall be drawing the map of Barbershopia shortly. With the provinces of Tenor, Bass, and Alto. :)

The regulars are a bit more practiced at being glib. Believe it or not, one of Adam's jobs is to edit out "er"s, "um"s and stutters. I had my share, though I've had enough acting/performance experience to know that I'm going to do it and to try my best not to.
