Ben Gerber & Brent Newhall cover for Jonathan while he’s engaged with real life stuff for his first home.
Brent and Ben sneer at real life, preferring to spend our time on the internet. Where it’s virtual, and friendly. They do what comes naturally, which is talk about themselves.
They discuss their upcoming projects, talk a bit about board game design, and Ben also does a month in the life of a indie publisher, where the cover about the numbers. Total units “sold” (including free stuff), total gross and total net $$$ and the fact that a lot of people who get a free copy to review it, don’t end up reviewing it.
Many thanks to Ben and Brent for covering for me while I was indisposed.
