everything is awesome episode 150 - star crossed featured image

One hundred and FIFTY episodes. That number will always be way more impressive to me than the 11.5 years I’ve been podcasting. Shout out to James D’Amato for asking me what I was planning on doing for 150—it got me thinking and I really liked playing Jeff Stormer‘s Mission: Accomplished! for episode 100, that I wanted to visit another tabletop role-playing game.

At PAX Unplugged 2018, in Philadelphia, I sat down with Ben Wallis from the Pod of Love podcast to play Alex Robert‘s Star Crossed. This game is not just crazy fun, it’s incredibly beautiful. I don’t know if it gets sillier than playing this game as Eddie Brock and Venom, but I’ll be damned if it wasn’t an incredible love story. Listen to see what happens with these crazy kids.


The excitement, tension and heartbreak of romance! In Star Crossed, you’ll craft characters who are powerfully attracted to each other, but have a compelling reason not to act on their feelings. Some of the things you’ll want your character to do are going to increase that attraction – and when that happens, you are going to pull a brick out from an increasingly shaky tower and place it on the top. If the tower falls, your characters act on their feelings! Will your love be doomed, triumphant, or something in-between? Find out in Star Crossed!


A two-player actual play and advice podcast hosted by Ben and Mel. We look at relationships and romance through the lens of tabletop games.


On January 27th, 2019, we are organizing our THIRD annual one-day festival to celebrate the anniversary of Everything is Awesome, celebrate the awesome creators located in Philadelphia, and—most importantly—raise money for The HEADstrong Foundation, an organization that offers financial, residential, and emotional support to families who are affected by cancer. Our goal is to raise $500 this year and you can help to get us there by donating at the festival or RIGHT NOW at bit.ly/headstrongfest! More details about all the performers (24 podcasts and over 20 comedians), venues (there are four of them), and our sponsors can be found at festival.awesomepodcast.com!
