  1. You mentioned Gerry Duggan in this episode. Not only does he work on some really cool Deadpool stories, he was also on a D&D podcast for a while, which was sort of my gateway drug for Critical Hit. Check out the early episodes of Nerd Poker! It would be super sweet if you guys could do an interview with Gerry or something.
