About the Author

Travis “Wheels” Wheeler (they/them) has discovered an ancient magical artifact that allows them to add an extra twelve hours into every day, just enough extra time to make multiple weekly podcasts and act as behind the scenes editor for many more, including Interstitial and Got it Memorized? They live in chilly Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, but hail from the slightly less chilly Muskegon, Michigan, USA.

Logan Jenkins (he/him) helps edit, create music, and make art and designs for the Very Random Encounters podcast. He lives in Greenville, South Carolina, with his boyfriend where he has a whole bookcase devoted to RPG books, and wishes he had more time to play them all.

Lee Terrill (she/her) hasn’t met an RPG yet that she doesn’t like. Her main hobby, outside of gaming, is mostly collecting other hobbies but you can also find her every week on the podcast Very Random Encounters where she plays many diverse characters with extremely similar southern accents. She lives in Greenville, South Carolina, with her husband and their incredibly needy cat, The Stig.

Greg Leatherman (he/him) graduated with a degree in Theater Arts, he’s put all those skills into bringing characters to life in his favorite pastime playing Tabletop RPGs, and self-publishing his own award-winning RPG called Glitter Hearts in 2020. You can hear him on many other podcasts, like Mythical and It’s Super Effective. He lives in Minneapolis with his husband and two dogs fending off the cold winters.
