Loren Teaches Eppy About Beer

Person Teaches Eppy About Thing returns with perhaps the most important topic yet: Beer!

Loren Peterson, a beer professional and enthusiast, teaches me the differences between an ale and a lager, what makes a sour beer sour, the proper way to pour for aromatics, and much more!

Check it out!

And in case you were wondering about the sword & sorcery beer commercials I couldn’t quite recall in the video, feast your eyes:

I’m looking to record more of these. If you’re a person who knows about a thing, I’d love for you to teach me about it. Let’s hang out and record it! Hit me up in the comments or on my Twitter or wherever else you may find me. It doesn’t matter what your thing is, if you’re passionate about it, I bet I’d dig it.

Andy Teaches Eppy About Contact Juggling

If learning is the process of failing until you don’t, then this next episode is all about Eppy “learning” to juggle a ball.

Andy Berdan joins me for the latest installment of Person Teaches Eppy About Thing wherein I giggle a lot as I drop my ball and root around for it on screen.

Behold, Andy Teaches Eppy About Contact Juggling!

Despite all the balls flying around in the video, this is not the sort of juggling where things are typically tossed. This is a style more fitting for a Goblin King, a style where the ball never appears to lose contact with your body.

I had a lot of fun recording this and I’m actually looking forward to getting home this evening so I can practice more, which is not what I expected. And when I shared this video with my co-working friends at Another Castle, I didn’t expect so many other folks to know what contact juggling was. I have been oblivious!

At about 42 minutes, this is the shortest Person Teaches Eppy About Thing I’ve done thus far—followed by Shel Teaches Eppy About Merch at around an hour forty and then the two hour opus that is Tyler Teaches Eppy About Playwriting—and it was quite a bit more physical. My horizons are broadening!

Tyler Teaches Eppy About Playwriting

Today, Tyler Crumrine teaches me about playwriting! And, not surprisingly, we spend quite a bit of time talking about that intersection between playwriting and game designing.

Behold, Tyler Teaches Eppy About Playwriting!

Tyler is a dramaturge skilled in the eldritch arts of the theater. We talked for a little over two hours about the differences and similarities between playwriting and other forms of fiction and verse—in particular short fiction and game design because I am a creature of habit.

There’s a trove of intriguing concepts and thought exercises in the video, but the one that still burns in my brain is devised theater—a collaborative playwriting technique that shares a kinship with playstorming.

It only takes two points to define a line. Last week Shel Kahn taught me about merch. So here we are, on point two, looking at a path forward. Expect more Person Teaches Eppy About Thing in the future, folks!

Shel Teaches Eppy About Merch

Recently, I had the great pleasure sit down with Shel Kahn upon these here internets and talk about making, producing, shipping, and promoting merch. And folks, I am so very pleased to tell you that we recorded our talk!

Behold, Shel Teaches Eppy About Merch!

Shel is an artist and merchwright with a penchant for the swords and the sorceries, and long time Worlds Without Master fans will recognize her art from “One Winter’s Due” in issue 2Worlds’ very first illustrated cover on issue 4, and her comic Wolf Neighbours which appeared in issues 9 and 11.

If it’s not obvious, I’m a fan. Dabbling in publishing the way I do affords me wonderful opportunities like this to work with and just hang out with some talented folks. When Shel offered to tell me about how she handles merch and agreed to recording our conversation, I jumped at the chance.

The video is just under 1 hour and 40 minutes long, and it is packed full of practical how-to instructions and generally helpful advice, covering:

  • Storefronts
  • Print-on-Demand
  • Drop Shipping
  • Experimenting
  • The dazzling array of products available
  • Hawking your wares
  • Seriously, hawk your wares

And it lit a fire in my brain! Expect some merch from Eppy in the near future!
