This week we talk mostly about pen and paper RPGs and the fun we've been having playing Pathfinder - a D&D relation. We also talk about a fantastic podcast called The Glass Cannon Podcast which has taught us a huge amount about role playing and the rules of Pathfinder. And then finally we respond to a listener comment talking about how kids can be allowed to message each other using phones and tablets using an unexpectedly classic app! Check the 30 minute mark if you want to skip past all the Pathfinder nerdery.
