The Bear's Grove #10: The Super Hero Edition!

Download the podcast here.

As you can probably tell this week is our Super Hero themed episode. And we have a few features this week having to do with our theme.

We have a piece about the private lives of super heroes by our visiting columnist Alan Braden called "By Day..." and I have a piece about my experiences with super hero gaming.

Then we'll have the first half of a "female gamer" interview with my partner, Cynthia, and then I'll finish up the Religion in Gaming segment I started last week.

As always, the music from this podcast is from the Podsafe Music Network at music dot podshow dot com.

We are a proud member of the Goblin Broadcast Network at, where you'll find so many gaming podcasts that stick shaking won't enter into it in any way. We are also part of the Science Fiction Podcast network at tsfpn dot com, and the Gaming Podcast Network at gamingpodcastnetwork dot com.

And a new announcement! In the interests of welcoming diversity to the practice of storytelling and roleplaying, we've joined the Q-Podder network as a gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender-friendly podcast. Welcome to our new Q-Podder friends!

Music in this podcast has been:

In the opening, The Dudes in the Car by Vincent Van Go Go and Forest in the Morning by Fumitaki Anzai

Luna by Fumitaki Anzai was the music that opened Alan's column. Opening the interview with Cynthia was a song called "Hell of a Boy" by the Lascivious Biddies. And finally the music "Celebration" by Mark Heimonen. We will finish out today's podcast with a song called "The Spirit World" by Josh Woodward.

All of this music is available for download by podcasters at the Podsafe Music Network, music dot podshow dot com, and very soon non-podcasters will be able to slip the artist some change and come away with a lovely song in exchange.

Please join us in 7 days when the Bear's Grove number eleven will have the second half of our interview with Cynthia, a column about Nothing from Alan Braden, the continuation of our Game Designer's Toolkit series, and our special feature, which will be about SEX in gaming. Look forward to seeing you then, and sweet dreams when you get them!

It strikes me that #10 features two female gamers. You just miscounted.
