As we enter production for Season 1.5, Michael and Jake sit down with the lovely fellows over at Dice in Mind to have a chat about the making of Season 1.0. Learn a bit more about the project’s genesis, how the group came together, and get into the nitty gritty in how this thing is put together.
From Dice in Mind’s feed:
This week we have the good fortune of chatting with Jake Blouch and Michael Doherty, two of the minds and voices behind the wonderfully creative Mythic Thunderlute: A D&D Podcast Musical. If you have listened to MTL, we think you will agree it is one of the most creative things happening in the RPG community today. If you haven’t listened to at least a few of their episodes, stop what you are doing and get on over to their feed. Yes, it’s that good.
Please check out Mythic Thunderlute, and while you’re there support their work through Patreon and buy their merchandise:

His original musical Something Like a War was commissioned by 11th Hour Theatre Co, and received a showcase reading in 2019. For his turn in their production of See What I Wanna See he won the Barrymore Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Musical. He lives in South Philly with his true love, his wife Sophia, and her true love, their dog Teddy and cats Tobias and Sister Aloicius.

Welcome to Dice in Mind, a weekly podcast in which we explore the meaning of life through the lens of RPGs! In each episode, we will consider everyday stuff like science, religion, philosophy, and economics…through the lens of a specific roleplaying game and its dice mechanic.
