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/

    Congratulations on 100 episodes of Know Direction. I have been playing since beta and your podcasts (know direction, 3.5 private sanctuary) have been instrumental in helping me to maintain my connection to Pathfinder. You guys, this website provide a tangible service to the Pathfinder community.

    As an idea, you could start calling your con-helpers Pathfinders. After all they are to explore, report, and cooperate.

  2. I like the thought behind your idea, but I feel like calling the KD Con Team members Pathfinders would get confusion really quickly. 🙂
