Season 2 of Natural Geekery!

I’m very happy to announce the first episode for Natural Geekery, Season 2 will be dropping this Wednesday morning, July 22rd. New episodes will continue to release every Wednesday for your geeky listening pleasure!

It’s been rough holding on to this secret for what has turned into a very long six months. I made the decision to relaunch things back in January of this year and since then have been very busy creating, recording and editing new episodes. I had hoped to kick this off a little earlier but, as you may have guessed, 2020 had other plans. (I think 2020 has had alternate plans for just about everyone at this point.) Regardless, I am finally ready to share it with all of you.

This podcast has always been about the community surrounding the hobby of tabletop roleplaying games and the joy we get from creating characters and playing through stories. (And, yes, I did just say, “We.” More on that in the upcoming episode!) To that end, we’ve decided to create our own story as well as looking more to that focus on interaction and community. We are going to be doing this with a special twist that I don’t think you will find in other podcasts.

I don’t want to spoil it early but let’s just say we’ve built an entire new game world for you to enjoy and explore with us. In addition, a new feature for listeners to email in gaming stories has been added. We will also be adding surveys and questions and all manner of things available to you to have a hand in shaping the progress of the show. In addition, there are plans still being worked on that will take us well into next year and beyond with stories, interviews, and more.

As we move through the later half of what has been a very tough year for most of us, it’s our hope the upcoming Season 2 will give you a chance to take a break from the nuttiness of the world, have a laugh, enjoy a tale and to share in our enjoyment of roleplaying, storytelling and creativity.

The podcast will be available here of course and is available on all major podcast hosts, Apple, Spotify, Stitcher, TuneIn and others.

If you have any questions, comments or would like to be on the show then feel free to comment here or email me at naturalgeekery@gmail.com!

I look forward to kicking off Season 2 with you this Wednesday. See you then!

Keep Shining!
