Shelly Mazzanoble (@shellymoo) and Greg Tito (@gregtito) kick-off another exciting ride through a portal to the land of Dungeons & Dragons with the always radiant Shelly and an energized, coffee fueled Greg. Today they welcome the superbly talented artist and writer, Molly Ostertag (@mollyostertag). Born in the Hudson Valley area of upstate New York, Molly remembers the magical times she spent in the ancient forests around her home wearing elf ears whilst sharing in unforgettable stories with The Way Finder Experience; a live-action role-playing company for teens, children, and adults. Then she shares with us how she came to love story-telling which later led to writing and illustrating her own graphic novels. Her debut book The Witch Boy has garnered high praise for tackling challenging subjects such as gender identity in a fun and approachable way for children and adults alike. Lore You Should Know – Matt Sernett (@sernett) is on today to discuss the Saturday morning cartoon Dungeons & Dragons, which first debuted in 1983 and went for 3-seasons for a total of 27-episodes. Only 26-episodes were ever aired and rumor was that the last one revealed that in fact, all the kids had died and were in hell! Yes, a bit bleak for a Saturday morning kids show. But have no fear, Matt quickly dispels this rumor and sets the record straight drawing on his encyclopedic knowledge of D&D lore.
