Traveller Podcast

Hi y’all,

We posted episode 8 of our podcast today, which tends to be about Traveller.




Thanks for the heads up, Bob.

I’ve listened to the first few SAFCOcast episodes and have enjoyed the topics and discussions between you and Jeff. Loved all the out-there homebrew setting examples. I am especially enjoying your Traveller content, but your content related to GURPS (which I don’t play) has also given me some food for thought. Thanks also for providing copious links in your episode notes.

Good gaming,


Thanks for the feedback, Trailhead. Gaming & BS has been a good example for us, though we have tried not to copy their format. I have been thinking that we’d play more GURPS soon, as I was planning on devoting a year of our group to Traveller, but I have been soooo sucked into Traveller.

I would very much like to hear Brett and Sean discuss GURPS, Traveller, or other space gaming on Gaming & BS. I need to go back through their archive and see if there is something I’ve not listened to.


Lord Bob, (or is that LordBob?),

I’m a big fan of Brett and Sean due to the joking banter between them, but you and Jeff have a style of your own that also appeals to me. More no-nonsense, straight talk. And again, I appreciate all the links backing up your discussions. Makes it easy to follow up on things you mention. (Similar to Die Roll here in BS land.)

Brett and Sean don’t often discuss Traveller or GURPS, but these systems do occasionally pop up in their chatter. There is an interview with Marc Miller in the feed from November 9, 2016 - Bonus BS episode 16 (after regular episode 113), but I’m guessing you’ve listened to that one. Episode 154 is Games with No Classes - I listened to it over a year ago, so I don’t remember if they brought up Traveller in this episode, but I think that’s why I picked it out of their archive to listen to. I seem to remember them discussing Traveller in the context of character generation, but can’t find which episode that would be, unless it’s the Games with No Classes one. Traveller character generation is the best!


Gaming & BS tends to make the discussion kind of universally applicable, regardless the game they are discussing, which I find very nice. It is the one podcast I listen to as soon as a new one comes out. My gold standard in gaming podcasts.


New episode:


We posted a new episode yesterday. Starting at about 1 hour 5 minutes we discuss Jeff Dee’s “the Mighty Protectors: V&V 3.0” – specifically character generation.

LordBob -

Congratulations on your contest win! You gained quite a haul of Traveller materials! I was just thinking yesterday of the podcasts I listen to that focus on my favorite RPG systems and how these have become my favorite podcasts, yours included. And then your brief update came into my feed this morning! My condolences to Duane and my best wishes to you and Jeff as you navigate the waters of adult life. I empathize with both the loss of loved ones and the difficulties of adulting. May you still get in as much gaming as possible under the circumstances. I appreciate the short update and look forward to more from you and Jeff.

Best regards,

PS - I am also, of course, a big fan of the Gaming and BS podcast, which is the best system agnostic RPG podcast out there, IMHO.


Happy to learn of this podcast, will def check it out!

I think Brett has said specifically he doesn’t like sci fi.

Thanks! We try to hype Gaming & BS at every opportunity.

Posted episode 15 last night.

I have refrained from spamming my own podcast here, as Gaming & BS is my favorite podcast, but thought I’m mention we have continued and are about to record #27. G&BS is one of our two main inspirations.
