Fear The Boot presents the ENnies podcasting award, and Dan gives a great speech on podcasting! Ben's GenCon Blurb. Fans? We have fans?

Dancing cages and the people who use them. The After Serenity LARP. Panels and programming. Podcasters, the parties, and the booth. Events we went to, with some location gripes. RPG Buffet: Scion: Hero! Back to GenCon. Demos. Other folks drawn to Indy by the convention crowds. Next time: the stuff we got!

This month, Mags did double-as both GM and head chef, preparing a simple and tasty Chicken and Veggie Lo Mein for the players:

"I call this my Blue Light Special Lo Mein because all of the ingredients came from discount stores. First, I found some food service packages of Soy Ginger Noodles & Sauce from Simply Asia at my local Big Lots. I prepared those according to package directions, then stirred about 2 cups of steamed vegetables from Costco's Kirkland Signature Stir Fry Pack. If you can't find this excellent mix of veggies, you can stir any or all of the following steamed vegetables:

chopped broccoli
sugar snap peas
baby corn
baby carrots
chopped mushrooms
sliced water chestnuts
chopped red and yellow bell peppers
chopped green onions

Finally, I took about 2 pounds of chopped boneless skinless chicken thighs, and sauteed them in peanut oil with a couple of tablespoons of garlic, and seasoned with a tablespoon of La Choy Garlic Ginger Stir-Fry Sauce and Marinade, and a couple of dashes of white pepper and ground ginger. I tossed the chicken with the noodles and veggies, and served it to my players with soy sauce.

"John brought along bread, Steve bought plum wine, grenadine, and orange juice to make plum risers, Brandon contributed a variety of pops, and Louis brought Angel Food Cake so we could celebrate John's birthday."

Great insiders look at GenCon... can't wait for part 2. I mainly wanted to let you know how much I appreciate the service that your show provides. I've checked out 15-20 gaming podcasts and AGC is one of my 4 "must hears" on iTunes. I have based my last 3 gaming purchases on information from your show (and the Rolemonkeys sessions) and have to say that your choices and reviews are spot on.

Thanks, I'm glad we can help. The next show should be out this coming weekend.
