Game Design Round Table interview with Ryan Dancey

I want to draw attention to this podcast: The Game Design Roundtable Podcast

I listened to episode 73 last night, which was an interview with Ryan Dancey, creator of Legend of the Five Rings, the Open Game License, EVE Online, and is now working on a Pathfinder MMO.

It's a fascinating interview about the business side of the gaming industry. In it, Dancey recounts the business case behind the Open Game License and how the Pathfinder brand came to out-sell the D&D brand 2-to-1.
