Bonus Episode: Let's Talk about Cats (With Don Moore Kramer)
This is an episode I have been wanting to record since I started the podcast. Don and I finally got a chance to sit down and discuss current events, history, mythology, and our mutual love of cats. This podcast would not exist without support from friends like Don, so I am very happy to have him join me for an episode.

Bonus Episode 1: D&D Tag
Back at the beginning of 2021 Ginny Di and Mark Hulmes did a set videos where they answered some questions about their experiences with Dungeons and Dragons.
