Dear Listeners, we are extremely pleased to present to you the first episode of Book 2, MYTH MADE FLESH.
After the disturbing events that concluded our previous book, Regan finds herself in a literal tight spot and in possession of very sensitive information. Jen must decide between keeping Regan’s confidence, and looking out for the best interests of the Party. And Arlene and Gwen’s own troubling discovery threatens to disturb their newfound peace. All the while, Regan’s prospects for escape from her predicament dwindle by the minute…
Part 2 of this chapter will be available on March 26. We hope you’ll join us then.

Today, we bring you yet another podcast pilot from within the TOAFN family.
Greg Schulz (plays Yllowyyn) is one of the minds behind LEFT TRIGGER RIGHT TRIGGER. It’s a book club…for video games! We hope you enjoy it. If you do, make sure to subscribe to them on iTunes and follow them on Twitter.
And for everyone who enjoyed the TAKING INITIATIVE pilot last time, here’s a reminder that they have a new episode out tomorrow, Monday March 6.
And if you still can’t get enough D&D after that, you might enjoy YOU MEET IN A TAVERN.
And of course…we’ll be back with the premiere of Book 2 on Sunday March 12 – one week from today. See you then!
We are extremely pleased to announce official release dates for our next episodes (!!!)

If you could all do us a favor and help spread the word between now and then, you’ll receive a) our eternal love and admiration, b) more friends to talk about the show with, and c) preference when we choose questions for our on-air, end-of-chapter AMA. Keep reading for details.
TL;DR – If you buy Arlene’s song on Friday, Feb. 3 2017, all of your money will be donated to the ACLU.
In light of recent events, Bandcamp has pledged to donate the entirety of their share of sales on Friday, Feb. 3 2017 (starting 12pm Pacific) to the ACLU. You can read Bandcamp’s press release here. Several members of our team already contribute privately to the ACLU, but we thought this would be a good opportunity for any of our fans looking to do the same.
As you may know, we currently sell “The Singing Sister” through Bandcamp (link at the top). If you buy the song this Friday, we will also donate the entirety of our share of sales to the ACLU.
For those of you keeping score at home, that means Bandcamp’s whole share and our whole share will be donated – which leaves only a cent or two on the dollar going to PayPal. If you’ve done your homework, you may have some misgivings about one of the founders of PayPal. So, to offset that concern, we will also match and double the PayPal fees in our donation.
Thanks everyone. Stories matter, and we’ll keep doing what we can to ensure that endangered stories get heard. We hope you’ll join us in the effort.
Today’s bonus content is the pilot episode of a new side project from our editor, Josh. It’s a D&D podcast called Taking Initiative.
We hope you enjoy it as much as we did, but any feedback is welcome. If this just isn’t your cup of tea, don’t worry. Taking Initiative will have its own website and feed so that this one doesn’t get bogged down with a show you didn’t sign up for. But if you’d like to hear more Taking Initiative after today, you can head over to thespark.network for all the subscription info.
Oh and by the way…the next announcement you hear from us will be the release dates for Book 2. Stay subscribed 🙂
