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:

    A fun listen; very enjoyable.

    Ari was awesome. I’m really looking forward to more of the obliviously wholesome shtick she brought to the stuffy Taldan party.

  3. David

    Will this get posted to youtube, or is this mp3 only?

    I liked this but the different players got variable audio quality. Perram’s channel was very clear but some others had a lot of his or too much high-end.
    Also, I think Perram’s character may be a little toooo broad. But it’s early days.

  5. Joe Collins

    This is already on my short list of must-listen actual plays. All of the characters already feel so three-dimensiona. Thanks!

    Is this going to be available via rss so I can download it like a podcast? Or post it to soundcloud like Roll Mongers do?
