Ken and Robin Talk About Stuff is the podcast of authors and game designers Kenneth Hite and Robin D. Laws. Stuff talked about includes hobby gaming, history, occultism, chrono-travel, food, cinema, narrative, art, politics, food, maps, Cthulhiana, and in fact any matter subject to jocular yet penetrating erudition.
Robin D. Laws designed the GUMSHOE investigative roleplaying system, including such games as The Esoterrorists and Ashen Stars. Feng Shui 2, his reboot of his classic action movie roleplaying game, can now be found in all its glory in a friendly game store near you. Hillfolk, his game of riveting personal conflict, won the 2014 Diana Jones Award and the Indie RPG Award for Indie Game of the Year. Recent highlights of his nine books of fiction are New Tales of the Yellow Sign, Blood of the City and The Worldwound Gambit. As Creative Director of Stone Skin Press he edited such fiction anthologies as The New Hero, Shotguns v. Cthulhu, andThe Lion and the Aardvark: Aesop’s New Fables.
Kenneth Hite has designed, written, or co-authored more than 70 roleplaying games and supplements, including the Star Trek Roleplaying Game, GURPS Infinite Worlds, Day After Ragnarok, Trail Of Cthulhu, and Night’s Black Agents. Outside gaming, his works include Tour de Lovecraft: the Tales, Cthulhu 101, Zombies 101, Where the Deep Ones Are, and the graphic illustrated version of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to U.S. History.

He lives in Chicago with his wife Sheila, two cats, and many, many books.
