The 3rd episode of the Grim Dark Podcast will be recorded this weekend, and this time we're going to be talking about Deathwatch. I've included here the plan for our episode discussion. In line with the community focus we want to have in our show, if anyone would like to raise any particular questions or has comments that you think we should include in these discussions, please post them here, or email them to


We'll let you know once the show is recorded, edited and ready for download early next week.
