Some time with an Author.

We asked Gabriel how did he start?  Where do the ideas come from? Gabriel also goes into the nitty gritty of self publishing, the editing process and why he works the way he does. If you want some do’s and don’ts – this is for you!

You can follow Gabriel’s work here!

We will be reducing the number of episodes appearing in our RSS Feed & in your Podcast Players. Being the longest-running wargaming podcast means our feed is GIGANTIC. It has become too large so we had to cut it down. Well not really just organise it a tad differently. Our older episodes will still exist on our website and be available for you to pla and download. We will also continue to call back to older episodes as pertinent. Stay tuned for compilation episodes comprised of an entire year’s worth of episodes in a single download – Looks like Josh won’t be getting much sleep!
