GSN PODCAST: Dissecting Worlds: Gor

Matt and Kehaar take another turn off from the Legendary Creators series to speak to James Desborough, Game Designer of Dark and Controversial Games, to speak on his current project; bringing to life John Norman’s “Gor”. This series of novels inspires a number of  reactions across fandom, many of them unfavorable, but it also has its own cult (and as we discuss, Actual Cult) following.
