About Stu Venable and the Happy Jacks Crew

Happy Jacks RPG Podcast began in the summer of 2009. 

A few months prior to that, I got back into the table-top RPG hobby after a decade-long hiatus. I first started player RPGs with DnD in a friend's basement in 1979, and never looked back. 

When we started Happy Jacks, we had no idea it would become as popular (or run as long) as it has, but it's been a sheer joy to do. 

In the past nine years, the show has expanded from the original three hosts to a group of creators, educators, entertainers, gamers and thinkers to create a show like no other. 

We also started recording our games (actual play), so listeners could hear our advice in action.

Through the generosity of our Patreon subscribers, we were able to upgrade our studio from a project studio to a high quality video streaming studio. We currently run several campaigns on Twitch and YouTube Live -- and live stream our weekly show there as well -- precisely because of people like you who value what we're doing and stepped up to donate.
