Shovelcast #1: From Realm of LARP, Sir Barrington / Christian Gebhart

Imagine me looking like this throughout the interview.

I warned you. And here it is. An hour and thirty-seven minutes of pure nerdery.

It’s the first-ever podcast, excuse me, SHOVELCAST, from Me and My Shovel, so it’s just like the typical post: long, rambling, full of curse words, unedited, and probably awful. I aim to please! Seriously, though, I had a lot of fun doing this interview with one hell of a great dude. We talk about LARPing in general, being nerds, and Realm of LARP stuff for a good long time. Christian was a hell of a good sport, considering that his first post-show interview was with an amateurish half-drunk boob (that’s me) who had no idea what he was doing.

Fun fact: as nerds, we were of course sitting at a gaming table in someone’s basement as we did this. Totally appropriate.

So anyway, if you want to hear Barrington’s side of the story from the infamous Episode 5 Debacle, you’re in luck! If you want to hear my words get a little more slurry as time goes on, now’s your chance! If you think I remember half of what’s on here, you’re out of your mind!

I need to figure out how to make this a drinking game.

So, here is the last bit of ado: thank you to John and Lori for the use of the basement, and to Kyle for the use of the voice recorder. And also thanks to Christian’s wife and mine for letting us get all bromancy for a couple of hours unsupervised.

Here it is. God help us all.

Oh and I should probably add: NSFW (occasional potty mouths, constant levels of man-crushing).

  1. Where’s my $50?
    Fun interview, you’ll have to get him to talk about Blackhole Force next time!

    They should get Christian to run the GM camp for the next season of Realm of LARP. Legends of the Mark is probably the best combat LARP in the US. (Euro-LARPs with steel weapons might be a notch up, so I can’t definitively say best LARP period.)

    • Luckily for my bank account, I can fall back on the fact that writers are lying about 85% of the time. Hopefully.

      I’ll be sure to ask him about that next time, heh. I’m curious.
