Also, as a personal note, during this interview I had all sorts of recording difficulties. Erick had an infinite well of patience for my troubles and even sent me those show notes. He was an amazing interview.

  • Hello

    my compliments for Echoes! Very well done. I like your style that you rather give only a few cues but let the interviewed person do the talking. Still, I cannot shake the feeling that you REALLY should do a part III for the conversation with Erick. A remarkable interview, indeed. Only it felt cut off. So, please kindly let it continue.

    Thank you! Keep the good work up.

    Best regards

  • It was cut off. That was the bad part. My mic died. I had like four more questions.

    Thanks for listening. Come back next week for Jason Richards who was a great guy to chat with.

  • Hiya,

    it is a pleasure to listen. Would be great if you could continue the interview with Erick, as said. Notwithstanding, being a great fan of all things Palladium I cannot wait to see the next installment of Echoes in any case, and listening to what Jason has to say (enjoying The Rifter as I do, that interest is only logical, too).

    Best regards

  • Hey

    These are great – really enjoyed them.

    Any chance you will interview Kevin Long at some time? He is one of my favorite artists and, as I am sure you already know, seems to do a lot of artwork for Rifts.



  • come on, where’s the next show?

    thankfully, your show has better audio quality than the talkshoe program, and i appreciate it immensly as i listen at work and fear my ears will blead at annother audio pop and fizzle, but regularity would be nice, i cant ask for a daily show, but i would appreciate once a week 😀

    meantime, great job thus far, looking forward to more palladium podcasts, finally getting my fix!

  • Nice work, it’s always interesting listening to Erick, especially since I’ve been a fan of Amber (both the books and the RPG) for a long time. Your ideas about N&SS in Rifts were also intriguing but need more fleshing out.

    I wouldn’t tie yourself to a per-week schedule. I’d rather have one good episode every x number of weeks than a mediocre filler episode every week.
