Hello listeners! Welcome to another episode of Reckless A-Talk, our TTRPG interview show where we sit down with some of our favorite writers, players, GMs, and streamers to get to know a little bit more about what makes them who they are.

This week we are joined by prolific and excellent TTRPG performer, writer and designer Austin Taylor, who you will learn through this interview does SO MUCH STUFF.

Austin has worked in a ton of big-name and/or familiar indie tabletop productions – he has written monster info for MCDM’s monster book Flee Mortals, performed in former Reckless A-Talk spotlighted shows Transplanar and Strix U, worked on the upcoming Kids in Capes game, and so much more.

They also manage to just be a really lovely, thoughtful, and charismatic person on the side.

She and I talk a lot about making spaces for yourself and others, labels, choosing characters that choose optimism, lessons learned as a therapist, making connections, and gardening. And the usual caveat of so, so much more.

If you enjoy the episode please go check out some of our other Reckless A-Talk interviews and maybe even our actual play episodes!
