  1. Actually, Spencer, your joke about Raiding the WoW park and making sure they had a good tank was one of the best jokes you've told, I think.

  2. Thank you for sharing this intriguing podcast episode! It's fascinating to see the convergence of writing and gaming, as well as the exploration of various gaming topics such as the incubi and succubi concept, the 38 Studios case, and the ever-popular Diablo franchise. When it comes to the benefits of playing games, like your favorite game sigma game, there is indeed a unique relevance to our mental well-being and problem-solving abilities. Engaging in gaming activities can serve as a form of mental refreshment and provide a much-needed escape from the stresses of everyday life. It allows us to immerse ourselves in virtual worlds, stimulating our imagination and creativity.
