Gaming and fandom is a large part of American culture. As a community center, we want to celebrate aspects of the hobby outside of just browsing the latest titles. We are partnering with a few local groups to bring you the first in a planned series of programs, all approaching the hobby in different ways.

The first is one that we’ve been partnered with for a long while now. Iconic is a podcast focused on 13th Age hosted by our role-playing manager, JM Defoggi and regular event hosts Nick and Mark. This is a monthly show not only for those curious about 13th Age but in RPG’s in general.

Second, we are now working with “Praying for Superpowers” a podcast that discusses topics from Magic the Gathering to Time Travel. The PoS guys are on a mission to pull all the things we love into an on-going discussion of why these elements of story and culture appeal to us and how we can use them enrich our lives and the lives of those around us.

Finally, we have the Guild of Gamers, where event host Robert and our own woman-behind-the-scenes JD review up-coming titles, cover a major store event and even give you demos of current titles. This is a semi-monthly program that will be hosted on our Youtube channel.

This is not counting the various writers and reviewers that are also part of the Petrie’s family… we’ll talk about them in the coming months.

Altogether we have so many talented and excited people that make up our community that it would be a shame not make you aware of their efforts. Take the time to check them out, and if you like what you see/hear, let us know. We’re excited to see what more comes our way to help you feel like you’re part of the Petrie’s community even when you’re not at the store.
