On a B/X kick lately (mainly because of Labyrinth Lord) so, this may be the first non-actual play podcast I listen to. Thanks for sharing!
It happens sometimes. People just explode. Natural causes.

I am currently running my C&C group through B1: Into the Unknown. I had them roll 3d6 in order for stats, I limited Classes and Races to what is available in Moldvay Basic (4 human classes, Dwarves and Halflings could only be fighters, and Elves are Fighter/Wizards) and reduced the gear and spell options accordingly as well. We've been having a blast!

Glad to hear! We had wanted to (re)cover B/Ex on the other podcast but left before we had a chance to. So we figured we'd do it over on SFH and see if our opinions had changed... They hadn't, but it was still fun to revisit.

Though if I had any regret it was doing both Basic and Expert on the same show. Looking back I think each should've gotten its own show and focus. ;)
