It’s the End of the World

Does anyone know the actual lyrics of that song, or does everyone just repeat “IT’S THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT!” Actually, are there other lyrics? I know I could look it up, but I feel like actually knowing the lyrics would be a horrible idea. It’s one of those things where it’s better to just not know.

Anyway, I have been quiet and super behind on posting everything except interviews. I’ve been sick and slowly working on getting things ready to post. I have a LOT that is waiting to be rewritten and will hopefully be up soon. But to tide y’all over, I decided to write this glowing recommendation as I listen to an episode of the podcast. So I’ve spent enough time dicking around, allow me to introduce you to this week’s recommendation: The End of Time & Other Bothers.

The End of Time and Other Bothers

The End of Time & Other Bothers by Eli McIlveen and Sean Howard is an actual play podcast following three adventurers, Eggerton, Darcy, and Blat as they attempt to stop time from ending. It is set in the world of Alba Salix and makes use of improv and the Dungeon World roleplaying system to tell the story.

It debuted on April 15, 2018 and currently has 20 episodes.

After 2018, I need things that fill me with joy. I want 2019 to be filled with more moments when I can feel good about myself, and the four ideals behind The End of Time & Other Bothers align with that goal:

  • Have a super fun time
  • Listen fully: Don’t interrupt each other; focus on the scene, not the joke; “Yes, and” or “No, but”
  • Empathy first: For each other; for the animals in our world; less focus on violence
  • Be inclusive: Play the game we will be proud of later.

It’s just so wholesome and full of joy. It also has a beautiful sound design that I can get lost in. If you are looking for an audio fiction podcast that is pure joy, I suggest that you check out The End of Time & Other Bothers.
