Gamers, Games & Gaming

We’re joined by two experiences tabletop gamers, Will & Chris, to learn about gaming culture and explore where & how the church might learn and connect. Will (@oddrev1) blogs at www.oddrev.com & Chris (@ChrisABooth) produces art here.

If you have no idea about role-playing games, such as Dungeons & Dragons, here are a few introductory videos:

  • Watch Community, S02E14 “Advanced Dungeons & Dragons” on Stan
  • Watch The Big Bang Theory, S12E16, “The D&D Vortex” on Netflix (soon)
  • Watch HarmonQuest, S01E01, here (and yes, technically they’re playing Pathfinder, but we’re not focussed on details)

Intergen can Inspire

We’re back for 2020 and kicking off Season 5 (what?!?) with Bradon’s keynote at ACYM in Perth, exploring ‘Intergenerational can be Inspirational.’

Don’t forget you can always get in touch with your thoughts about the episode, or suggestions about what you’d like to hear as part of upcoming episodes. Email us at workexperiencepodcast<at>gmail.com

2019 Christmas Episode

We finish 2019 with a bang! Bradon highlights some of the best Christmas presents youth pastors have received over the past 25 years, and our new voicemail system reveals some delightful Christmas messages from former guests.

We also bid farewell to our technical assistant Alan, who’s general inability to fill his role has become a burden to the WXPC team. We have an exclusive interview with Alan.

#ExtraCredit

Our host has been in the studio during the season break, putting together 10-minute monologues. If you didn’t catch them in your podcast app or via our Facebook page, we’ve included them all here for your listening pleasure. Just click ‘Play’

Season Four Farewell

Our season finale features a banquet of content – an impassioned plea for the brilliance of Joan of Arcadia, a moment of raw beauty from a school assembly, a cheeky request for sponsorship, and the famed ‘River Camp Armageddon’ story.
