General Chat

By Anastazja Soliz
General Chat is a podcast about passion. Passion is the feeling that drives fans to devote hours to something. It's what motivates folks to camp for a rare mount spawn, to solve every puzzle, to romance that one extremely difficult-to-romance character. General Chat seeks to explore the passion behind fandom with in-depth interviews every week.

Episode 26 - Rho
This week’s episode features Rho from Realm Maintenance! We throw it all the way back with zork and the commodore 64, talk D&D and his actual play podcast, and after that things get deep. Rho opened up about some big losses in his life. He was vulnerable and open about topics that were personal, and I cannot thank him enough for talking to me about those experiences and how they shaped him.
