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:

  1. I’m really glad I listened to this one all the way through. Initially I though it would just be covering well-worn material regarding female gamers, but I found the storys from Margaret Weis interesting and insightful. I especially liked hearing about Rose Estes, who was one of my favorite authors as a kid.

    Also, it’s funny to me to hear my middle name in the end credits…it’s like I’ve suddenly become a serial killer or a D-list actor. 🙂
