This time, board games are making a full swing, as the Rocket Punch crew get to sit and chat with Carla and Nick Kopp, the creators for the popular up-and-coming board game company, Weird Giraffe Games! Carla and Nick swing by to discuss how they found a passion for creating board games and starting Weird Giraffe Games while on a road trip, the intricacies of their board game design process (which could be useful for any game designer), their experience getting more and more familiar with the Kickstarter platform, and the work that goes into iterating again and again on a project to make something one can be proud of.

Winter Robin Cosplay w/ Danielle Craft

It has been a long time coming, but a new episode of Creator Spotlight returns! This time, we get to sit and chat with someone that the Rocket Punch crew has been wanting to talk with for a while now: a cosplayer! In particular, we sit down with Danielle Craft of The Winter Robin Cosplay to talk about the exciting and increasingly popular activity of cosplay! In this episode, Danielle talks with us about how she was brought into the cosplay world, the work that she must put into to execute on each of her costumes everyday, and how sometimes, you just have to dress up and have fun with your friends, and forget about others that may look to criticize you. Plus, we bounce back and forth with her on the specific topic of the state of cosplay in the world today, and what that means to her personally, as well as what difficulties she (and others) have had to overcome to pursue the activity they enjoy. If you are looking to cosplay, or are already deep in the activity, then you should defi...

Red Crow Comics w/ Julian Jay Burton

For all of the geeky content and great projects we have talked about on Creator Spotlight, we have yet to talk to a comic creator and publisher. Until now! Aspiring comic creators out there should take notice of this week's episode, as we sit down with Julian Jay Burton, the CEO of local comic publisher, Red Crow Comics! Many writers and artists out there may be trying to figure out how to break into the comic world and work with powerhouses like Marvel and DC Comics, but for Jay, he decided to take the road less traveled, and started his own publishing company to create the stories and heroes he wanted to share with the world. It has (and still is) been a hard road to travel, but Jay and his team have done an impressive job building Red Crow Comics and releasing their first creations to the public! Join us today, as we sit and talk with Jay about starting his own comic publisher, his challenges in getting started, and finally realizing his creations on print for the first time!

Rocket City Quidditch Club w/ Jared Leggett

Our next Creator Spotlight is a fun one, as this week we pull a very special sport from the pages of Harry Potter, and bring it into the real world! Harry Potter fans should be pretty excited, as we chat with Jared Leggett about the local Quidditch team (you read that right)starting up in Huntsville, AL, The Rocket City Quidditch Club! You may be wondering how the game of Quidditch could somehow work outside of the pages of your favorite J.K. Rowling book series (believe me, I was wondering the same thing), and we asked Jared to drop by and talk to us about how exactly Quidditch works out in the field, his experiences playing this crazy and intriguing sport, and also his plans and drive to bring a Quidditch team to Huntsville. Bring out your beaters and get ready to listen to one of the wildest sports available for you to play (as long as you can stay on the broom!)
