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.

We are so excited to share our conversation with TTRPG performer, game designer, and friend of the show S. Kaiya J.

In it, we discuss her time as LIllisen on the Curse of Strahd Actual play twice bitten, game design, and her role in the new TTRPG charity-in-the-making Diversity Saves.

We also touch on bringing layers and humanity to your characters, enjoying making something vs enjoying having made something, and considering what the world and the people in it do to you and vise versa.

Enjoy, and see you next week!
