Ryan Costello

What started as one gamer wanting to talk about his love of a game grew into a podcast network. Ryan founded what would become the Know Direction Podcast network with Jason "Jay" Dubsky, his friend and fellow 3.5 enthusiast. They and their game group moved on to Pathfinder, and the Know Direction podcast network was born. Now married and a father, Ryan continues to serve the network as the director of logistics and co-host of Upshift podcast, dedicated to the Essence20 RPG system he writes for and helped design. You can find out more about Ryan and the history of the network in this episode of Presenting: http://knowdirectionpodcast.com/2021/01/presenting-ryan-costello/


  1. Hi Ryan,

    Here is a nice and entertaining tutorial for “how to eat” for beardsmen and mustachio guys. I think it applies more to mustachio guys since the mustache gets slathered by incoming food the most.

    The first part is ~ 20 minutes.

    p.s. I hope you keep the stache, and maybe progress to a beard!

  2. Thanks for the advice, Bastille! But keep the stache? Nope. And progress to a beard? Nope nope nope. I’m so ready to shave on December 1st, I may shave my head along with it.
