Episode 25: James Wallis

james wallisThis week we catch up with games publisher James Wallis in the suitably recreational environs of a sunny London park. James is an ambassador for storytelling - his company Magnum Opus Press recently published The Extraordinary Adventures of Baron Munchausen. Learn about that, the geography of World of Warcraft, and how to win a World Record for endurance D&D playing, in this geeky(-est? ever?) episode.

Back in the studio, our very own Sophie Dahl of snacks, Dave Green, has some refreshing drinks for summer (more of which on his site Snackspot) - and we offer James's books to give away! Buy a tape of this episode and win The Extraordinary Adventures of Baron Munchausen; guess how many feet Roo is holding up to bag a copy of Magnum Opus's witty RPG manual Dragon Warriors. As ever, we can be emailed.

All this, plus the origins of branching narratives, Florence Nightingale facts, seattle latteambient birdsong, and oh, you know, the usual squabbles. Are you sitting comfortably? Good! Then let's begin.

    Brief erratum: Florence Nightingale wasn’t the first female member of the Royal College of Statisticians, because there’s no such thing. She was the first female member of the Royal Statistical Society. Sorry about that.
