Podcast Q&A

Why did you start this show?

There is a severe lack of actual play podcasts addressing the real questions in life, like what kind of drugs make you see machine men, how effectively can you lie to interdimensional squirrels, and what sandwich is best for sentient slime molds. FOI is here to fill that void.

What do you hope listeners gain from listening to your show?

We're here to entertain you, first and foremost. Ultimately we want to present you with a story that's going to stick in your brain for a few days after you listen, and really make you ponder the implications you're left with.

Which episode should someone start with?

We'd definitely recommend starting with the primers (our 0.x episodes) so you know who's who. After that, we're episodic in nature so you don't necessarily have to listen to anything in order. My favorite to record was Episode 2 - The War of Drugs.

What is your favourite other podcast that isn't yours?

Two Monsters Rolling Dice are friends of the show, and local to us as well. We're huge supporters of their fantastic work. If you're looking for a western with Dinosaurs utilizing one of my favorite systems (Fate) I'd highly recommend them.

How did you come up with the name for your podcast?

As I'm wont to do, I let my players name their organization. That organization became the name of the podcast.

It's an actual play podcast, but it's great improv storytelling! Dice don't seem to be the most important thing here. The characters are gripping and we're only getting background. Very interested in seeing where the way the story twists us up.
