What is RPG Casts?
RPG Casts is a website that promotes Actual-Play and Discussion RPG Podcasts, and specifically aims to promote diversity in tabletop gaming. You can find RPG Casts at www.rpgcasts.com.

What is I Am Hear?
I Am Hear is a podcast that features interviews with people active in the RPG and RPG podcasting communities.

I Am Hear is me. It’s saying I’m Here. Hear Me. I belong. I am welcome. I’m not going anywhere.

I Am Hear is you. It's saying you’re here. You deserve to be heard. You are welcome. You belong. And please don’t go anywhere. You are wanted.

You can find I Am Hear at www.iamhearpodcast.com.

What are RPG Casts and I Am Hear all about?
RPG Casts and I Am Hear provide a platform where women, non-binary people, people of colour, women of colour, people with disabilities, and members of the LGBTQ+ community tell their stories and talk about what inspires them to play/design/listen/run RPGs, why representation in tabletop gaming matters to them, and what they want to see in the RPG and RPG podcasting communities.

Featuring these groups helps:
  • To promote their work (because I believe in it);
  • To let them, and their listeners, know that this is a space where they can simply be;
  • To help inspire them, and their listeners, to be active members of the RPG community; and
  • To be help highlight them in a way that fans can get excited about hearing/seeing themselves represented in their favourite RPG podcasts.

RPG Casts wants people to feel like RPGs and the RPG podcasting community are a safe and fun place for them, no matter who you are, what you heritage is, or who you love.

Why should I contribute?
I made, maintain, and continue to update RPG Casts because I adore RPGs and RPG podcasting, but especially because I love and believe in representation in our community. Which leads to why I am making I Am Hear: Representation Matters.

If you’ve ever made, or been involved with, a podcast before, you probably know how much time, money, and hard work it takes to create, schedule, and produce. And if you’ve had the chance to go to the RPG Casts site, you can probably guess the time and work that goes into updating and maintaining it. Overall, between the two, I probably spend about 15 hours per week of time dedicated to both the site and the podcast.

So if you’ve decided to be a Patron, THANK YOU. I am so appreciative. When you contribute, this goes directly toward the maintenance of RPG Casts and the creation of I Am: Hear.
