All Bark, No Dice Episode Six: Accessibility Assessment Squad w/ Jen Kretchmer

Share This Post

This week we’re talking with another contributor to Candlekeep Mysteries, Jen Kretchmer, who is perhaps best known for her work on shows like Monsters & Fables, Silver & Steel, as well as her advocacy for accessibility in the tabletop hobby. We have a very frank discussion about the need for disability advocacy in D&D and other games, as well as the ways that players and DM’s can help make their games more representative and understanding. Jen also gets into some of her inspirations as a storyteller and explains why tabletop streaming seems to have found a home in the entertainment industry.
