Episode 113, But That's Just Like, Your Opinion Man

(Whoops, looks like I forgot to publish this post last week. Sorry about that.)

Hey there, everyone! I hope you had a wonderful week. We start this episode off with some behind-the-scenes talk- I've been overworking myself and so I'm going to try and restructure how we do things here. Most of it won't affect you, the listener, but at the very least it's likely that our Actual Play podcast's release is going to be postponed, for at least the next few months. Once I have some time to get things back in order and catch my breath, we'll try to see where we stand and go from there!

As for the episode at hand, though, we discuss one main topic that shares a lot of DNA with the aforementioned difficulties- burn-out. How do you handle it, how do you see it coming, and what do you do when you know it's there? We talk all about that this episode, along with a healthy dose of goofs. So come along for the ride!
