Who We Are
The Glitter Dice Podcast is a monthly podcast by women who love games, for women who love games. It’s as simple as that! Your three hosts are Linda, Kelly and Joie, who all live in the Atlanta metropolitan area and have enough collective gaming experience to make a single septuagenarian. Our podcast is about all types of gaming, from tabletop and live action gaming, to video, card and board gaming. We basically do it all!
Each month, we choose the major topic for discussion by rolling a d20 and picking from a numbered list of possibilities depending on which number the die lands on. We know what the potential topics might be before the show, but don't know what we’ll actually be discussing until it’s time to roll the dice. We also talk about the games we’re currently playing, whether good or bad, and an aspect of geek culture that happens to pique our interest in a little section we like to call “Off Topic.”
Every three months, we release a multi-part actual play session of a one-shot tabletop roleplaying game. In the spirit of gaming "by women, for women," our tables and GMs are always female, nonbinary, or femme-identified. We frequently focus on indie games during our play sessions, and are particularly interested in spotlighting games written or produced by women.
We update in a monthly format and new episodes are available on the first of the month on our website at glitterdice.com, on Stitcher, Google Play, and through iTunes.
How Your Patronage Will Help
There are many costs associated with podcasting that the average listener may not be aware of, such as website and domain renewal fees, file storage fees, and equipment costs for microphones, headphones, and audio software. At the bare minimum, your patronage assures that we will continue to have all the basics that we need to continue podcasting. It will also allow us to acquire video games, board games and card games suggested by listeners to play and review. If you're frustrated that we haven't talked about your favorite game on the show, it might be because we don't have access to it! Becoming a patron helps expand our library and allows us to sample a wider variety of games to appeal to listeners' tastes.
We currently live in the Atlanta area, participate in a number of local larps, and visit many area conventions. With enough support, we'll be able to travel to other games and conventions, and potentially provide listeners with reviews or on-site recordings of our experiences. Becoming a patron would assist with travel costs and tickets to these events, ensuring a wide variety of experiences to bring back to the show.
Finally, we'd like to do more streaming sessions, particularly live-plays of board games, and potentially expand our one-shot tabletop sessions. Your patronage would help us purchase the equipment necessary to meed these goals.
