Mark the Encafffeinated ONE

DDOP2018: Encaffeinated Gaming

I’m a gamer — that means (to me) that one of my major hobbies is tabletop roleplaying games. I’ve been moving into video recording sessions and eventually streaming, and I’ve built my own D&D 5E world to play in. My plan is to talk a bit about that, from general gaming tips, musing about gaming as an artform, snippits from The World of Ommatia, and general goofy gamingness.

The Gamer’s Guide to Writing

Video games have had a profound influence on my creative development, but are often maligned as a creative or storytelling medium. But I’ve picked up lessons and applied them to my own writing from the most unlikely games. For this year’s DDoP, I’ll be talking about 31 video games that had a profound impact on my development and storytelling lessons that I learned from them, from playing Super Mario Bros. for the first time one Christmas morning up until today.


Justin Diehl


It’s time to come back for another round of Dog Days. This year, the event lines up with starting to work on a new novel, so I’ll be sharing my daily fun with that. I’m also in the process of preparing a book for publication, so I’ll be including discussion of the finer details of that work on the show.

Amy’s DDoP 2018: 32 Days of Wandering

Hi! I’m Amy Bowen, techie by day, podcaster and creative writer by night (actually – the other way around as of this year)! I’m very excited to be back for my third year of the Dog Days of Podcasting challenge. This year, I subtitled my challenge ’32 Days of Wandering’ because, this August, I will be traveling to even more places and doing even more things than in either of the past two years, wandering from one activity to another. As in previous years, my DDoP episodes will be in any one of three formats:

Thread Snippings – The show where I chronicle my cosplay endeavors and what I’ve learned.

Movie Chat with the Movie Night Crew – My friends and I get together to watch movies ranging from the seminal to the quirky to the ridiculous, and we share our reactions to them.

Amy Talks About Stuff – Where I talk about anything and everything that doesn’t fit under either of the other two headings.

Eat This Podcast presents: Our Daily Bread

First a pretty ordinary grass becomes the main source of sustenance for most of the people alive on Earth. Then they learn how to turn the seeds of that grass into the food of the gods.

Every day in August, I am going to dig into Our Daily Bread for the Dog Days of Podcasting with short episodes on the history of wheat and bread.
