For episode 71, JT and Jeff get asked a curious question for a listener request. One, at first, they're not sure if they should talk about on the podcast.

 

But it doesn't take J and Jeff long to put their heads together, come up with a plan to tackle the topic, and bring along a guest to fill in some rater large gaps.

 

So for episode 71, join JT, Jeff, and James Mathe as we discuss the idea and business of owning your own game store.

With episode 68, JT and Jeff decide it's time for a new perspective!

 

So JT reaches out and brings Ray Wehrs, of Calliope Games, on to the podcast to discuss Ray's perspective of The Game Crafter as a game publisher.

 

So does a publisher with such hits as Tsuro, Roll For It, and a successful Kickstarter for the upcoming Titan Series have a use for The Game Crafter? And would they recommend The Game Crafter to other publishers?
