    Rich: Thanks for the feedback. Our feelings regarding video games in the Giving Me Life segment mirror yours pretty closely (we even make a little joke about it in Episode 4). We have already planned out Episode 5, and I think the Giving Me Life segment in that one is going to be closer to what I had originally envisioned for the segment. I think the video game-ness of the segment heretofore is mostly a reflection of the fact we're just coming off the holidays and, absent Gauntlet events to attend, that's what most of us are doing to fill the time.

    Hey, I'm really enjoying your show. I like how you begin by talking about what you've been playing. I also enjoy your main topics.
    However, I wanted to drop a note and say I'm not a fan of the "Giving Me Life" segment. I don't understand it's purpose in a mostly RPG-focused show, I don't care to hear about video games mixed in (I do like video games, I listen to a couple video game review and discussion shows).
    If you really like the segment, maybe you could put it at the end, since it doesn't fit with the rest of the show's focus (as I see it in just four episodes so far, granted)?
