Thank you, and so long
Unfortunately, we've contacted some of the folks on our list to start recording a fourth season, but after numerous missed connections and timing issues, we're packing it in.
Our sincerest apologies to anyone who sent in an email to be in an episode and hasn't gotten a response from us yet.
The truth is that TMAYC has simply been unable to garner enough social media attention to make a volunteer interview show, even one expressly focused on being a positive voice in the RPG-playing community, a viable form of entertainment. For reasons unknown, the show just never found an audience and we've been unable to get enough reshares and links to grow our audience.
And so, it's with slightly heavy heart and a deep sense of failure that TMAYC announces an end to the series.
Our deepest Thank You to our three Patreon supporters - Tim Voves, Evan Edwards, and the folks at Follow Me and Die, and a massive thank you to Jaye Foster, our biggest champion on social media.

And we're back!
The new season of TMAYC begins 4/26 and we have no support! We desperately need your help to continue!
Please continue sharing links to episodes, getting the word out about TMAYC helps us find more people with stories to tell.
But did you know we have more planned? Since TMAYC started, we've been hoping to do a second version of the show just for game masters. This second version is meant to fill in the gaps between TMAYC seasons so that we can run the podcast year-round. But we need financial support to get there.
Please consider dropping by our Patreon campaign. For as little as a buck a month you can help us grow TMAYC and continue making this a show tabletop gamers will enjoy for a long time.

Squirrely characters issues fixed
We had some issues with squirrely characters in a JSON file that was causing the RSS for season 1 to break and the Blaine Capatch episode fail to play. Those issues have been fixed.
Blaine should now play fine and all of last season's episodes should return to the RSS and to iTunes soon.

Season 2 is here!
Season 2 is done and we're ready to launch into twelve new episodes of favorite characters starting this very Monday. It's our first full season and we couldn't be prouder of it.
But we also need your help. Our options for growing the podcast - both in terms of storage space and monthly cap - are limited. But we want everyone who loves RPGs to listen and take part in TMAYC and that's where you come in.
Please consider sponsoring the podcast through our Patreon campaign. For as little as a buck a month - that's a sponsorship of just fifty cents an episode - you can help us cover our hosting costs and keep the TMAYC archive open and free as we grow larger.
So please consider signing up. $1 a month. $12 a year. It'll really make a difference to the growth of this new podcast.

If you've got a story about a great character you've had, we want to hear it! We've put together a little advice page for interested folks to answer a few questions and offer some advice on your interview.
After you've scanned it, maybe drop by our contact page and throw your name in the hat!
We'll get in touch shortly and arrange a chat.
