Ludonarrative Dissidents

Ross Payton

Ludonarrative Dissidents is a podcast from Greg Stolze, James Wallis, and Ross Payton to explore and analyze tabletop RPGs. What does each game do, how does it work, and why do people play it? We are currently in season 2, and we've expanded to include episodes on types of game mechanics like meta currencies and initiative systems. Visit our website at to get detailed show notes.
