lately, I've been enjoying some of the podcast interviews with guys like Frank Mentzer and Tim Kask. I realized I've never seen links to any lengthy discussions with Gygax. Do they exist? How about any of the other folks from that era?
There's also a great one he did back in the 80's on...60 Minutes, I think it was. It was about whether D&D is satanic. The interviewer asks Gary if when he plays D&D he really believes he's a powerful wizard who can cast spells.
Gary's response: "When you play Monopoly do you really believe you're a slum lord?"

thanks for the tip. I was hoping someone might have longer audio interviews archived somewhere, but if so they seem to be sitting on them. Seems a shame.
As an aside: the DM from D&D Experience had some incredible looking maps (the Blue Headband guy). Is that anyone involved in the online community, and has he shared any? I love checking out those kinds of things. There seems to be precious little information on that film, though, and the director's website is defunct.
I don't remember if Stefan Pokorny is wearing a headband, but I know he's in that movie (he also talks about Dwarven Forge - "felt is quality!") and I've seen some incredible maps of his. They're not online anywhere, although I had a scheme to publish them once, and if you're ever in NYC we can look him up and ask him to dig them out for us.
