We're keeping it fresh at Pairing with a brand new topic: games! Emma is joined by Eric Silver (Join the Party, HORSE) to talk about the original Role Playing Game, Dungeons and Dragons. Whether or not you play D&D, if you like storytelling, you'll love this episode! They talk about similarities between Nerd culture and Wine culture, gatekeeping v. inclusivity, and the importance of names. Plus: hot takes on Bards, The Kingkiller Chronicles, Dragon Wines, "sommelier-ing",  horror twins, Daddy Warlock, dope swords, a high constitution for Chardonnay, and Josh.

Eric is the host and Dungeon Master of Join the Party, co-host of HORSE, and member of Multitude Productions. Check out Multitude's website for podcasting resources, and to hire him as a podcasting consultant! Follow Eric on Twitter @el_silvero.
