By the time this gets published, the #wtfaux podcast will be a thing!
This podcast won’t be me spouting opinions. I have Twitter for that, as I’m well aware that the only person who agrees with me is me. And even that’s only some of the time…
No, this show will be about Malifaux events. I love these days out, flipping cards and having a laugh with good friends. The best part about them is that everyone talks to everyone and there is always interest in how things go from those who can’t make it, and that's what I want to share with the world.
Each event will be an episode of itself. I’m hoping to convince at least one co-host to join me per episode, and that will probably be whoever is travelling in the same car. For that episode we’ll cover our games, what we played, who we took, and how we got on. There may be some deep tactical insight, but that depends very much on how things go on the day as I plan to do most, if not all, of the recording either travelling to and from events or at the event itself.
Alongside the progress coverage I hope to mix in interviews as the day goes on. Funny stories, interesting crews, maybe a Master you don’t see very often. And hopefully some painting advice from those who’ve got particularly awesome-looking crews.
As you’ve probably learned by now, this show will be reliant on me getting people to talk into a mic / voice recorder / phone and talk about Malifaux. That’s not normally a problem. We play a game that features zombie hookers, leaping mutant catfish, grannies in steam-powered wheelchairs and walking tributes to Johnny Cash. We should be talking about it because it’s awesome!
I think what I’m trying to say is, please don’t be afraid to grab me if you have something you want to talk about! This is an ambitious idea but if it works, it will allow potentially anyone at an event to have their say over the airwaves. It doesn’t bother me what level you play, whether you consider yourself a ‘name’ (I hate all this 'celebrity' rubbish at the best of times!) or even if you just want to sing the praises of a particular model. If it’s interesting, I’ll quite cheerfully slap it in the ‘cast.
The plan is to try the format out at a few events, put a few shows out and see if it works. If it does, great. If it doesn’t, oh well. It’s a gamble but not an overly expensive gamble so I’m happy to take the risk.
So. Thanks for reading, and hopefully you’ll give us a listen once the shows hit the Internet!
