Head over to iTunes, if you use it, then navigate to the Podcasts section and search for Warhammer. Or Games Workshop. Or the Horus Heresy. There are literally dozens of podcasts out there talking about all manner of things to do with the hobby, between them generating hours and hours of content. I’ve tended to be a bit of an unintentional luddite so far when it comes to podcasts, as until recently I’ve never quite managed to get myself keyed into them as part of my routine. Well, that’s about to change…
At Warhammer World the evening before Black Library Live, I bumped into Greg from The Imperial Truth, a Horus Heresy podcast that’s been running for a couple of years now. Fast forward through some helpful Blood Bowl tuition, chats about blogs and podcasts and an unsuccessful half an hour spent trying to find the assassin on the big 40k diorama in the exhibition hall…and Greg kindly invited me to come onto the show!
Starting with episode 57, I’m going to be coming on board to talk about the latest Horus Heresy releases from Black Library, chatting with Greg about what’s been coming out and what we think you should be reading or listening to. Rest assured I’ll be keeping things as spoiler-free as possible, just like on the blog, but without the restriction of a fairly short word count there’s maybe a little more scope to talk about certain things in more detail.
We recently recorded my contribution to episode 57, which turned out rather longer than I’d expected but was really good fun; we chatted about the Horus Heresy content included in the Advent Calendar so far, and spent a fair bit of time talking about The Master of Mankind, Aaron Dembski-Bowden’s latest Horus Heresy novel.
That episode is now available to download and listen to, either on iTunes (just search for The Imperial Truth) or by visiting http://theimperialtruth.com and taking a look at the list of episodes. If you enjoy reading my reviews on the blog, maybe check out this episode as well and see what you think!
This is the first time I’ve been involved in a podcast, so it’s completely new territory for me. I’m sure we’ll keep tweaking things in terms of my involvement with the podcast, but I’d love to hear from anyone who listens as to what you’d like to see included, and the level of detail you’d like us to go into. If you’ve got any comments or feedback, please do drop me a line either on the blog or on either Facebook or Twitter!
I hope you enjoy Track of Words on The Imperial Truth – happy listening!
