My guest on today’s show is writer, poet, book-seller, “newpaperist,” and runner Robert Earl Stewart. Robert and I, or Bob as I have always known him, go way back. We both grew up in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. In the mid-1980s when we were 13 and 14 years old, he and I created the Role Playing Wrestling Alliance, an amazing, all-consuming game that was at once part Dungeons and Dragons, WWE/WWF, and repository of our own intense brand of imaginary violence. The game consumed us for two to three years and in some way, had an influence on each of our professional paths.
This week, Robert has a wonderfully-written article coming out about our monstrous and fantastic creation in the upcoming issue of Canadian Notes and Queries (www.notesandqueries.ca ). In this conversation, we get into that (I think the article has several belly laughs), and we end discussing a range interesting topics, including:
It is a fun conversation that I am certain you will enjoy!
