Original podcast interview from That DnD Podcast
“Ever heard of Dungeons and Dragons? I would assume so, based on the fact that you’re here reading the show notes on a liveplay D&D podcast. In case you haven’t, though, it was started by Gary Gygax way back in the 70s.
Michael Witwer wrote a book chronicling the life of the king of all nerds. We convinced him (with sufficiently high diplomacy checks) to come on the show and answer some questions with us.
We will be having a giveaway of some copies of the book soon (maybe with other podcast swag? We shall see I suppose!)
Give it a listen HERE and let us know what you think!”
Origins Game Fair (formerly known as the Origins International Game Expo) is an annual gaming convention, which was first held waaaaay back in 1975.

So sit back and relax, and enjoy Sam’s WHR interview in full HERE.
Empire of Imagination: Gary Gygax and the Birth of Dungeons & Dragons by Sam Witwer’s brother Michael is a dynamic, engaging chronicle of the life and legacy of the great emperor of imagination.
“Here, for the first time, is a comprehensive biography of the mythic icon among geek and gaming culture, Gary Gygax – and the complete story behind the invention of Dungeons & Dragons.
The godfather of all fantasy adventure games, Gary Gygax, has a life story that has only been told in bits and pieces. Michael Witwer has written a dynamic, dramatized biography of Gygax from his childhood in Lake Geneva to his untimely death in 2008. Gygax’s magnum opus, Dungeons & Dragons, would explode in popularity throughout the 1970s and ’80s and irreversibly alter the world of gaming…”
