Feature Interview: Professional psychologist and gamer Dr. Megan Connell (@MeganPsyD) spoke to Shelly and Greg back in April about what it's like to run D&D for young people and the benefits of roleplaying games...
In the D&D office, we refer to Chris Lindsay (@onnatryx) as the Architect of the Dungeon Masters Guild and Master of Grung – not really. He jumped into the studio with Shelly Mazzanoble (@shellymoo) and Greg Tito (@gregtito) to discuss the Guild Adept program and all the awesome stuff they’ve made for Tomb of Annihilation. Find out more about the Guild Adept program here: http://dnd.wizards.com/articles/news/guild-adept-program. Lore You Should Know - Chris Perkins (@ChrisPerkinsDND) and Matt Sernett (@Sernett) talk about the history of hags in D&D. Watch Dragon Talk recordings live on twitch.tv/dnd Mondays at 2pm PT!

The BARD among Wizards... D&D Product Manager, Adventurers League Guru and architect of the Dungeon Masters Guild. Follow him @Onnatryx
Greg Tito has had weird and long career as an Off Broadway stage manager, a playwright, a theater carpenter, a secretary, an RPG designer, a games journalist, and now a PR/Marketing person. He has loved Dungeons & Dragons ever since 1985 when he found an old copy of the AD&D Dungeon Master’s Guide on his brother’s bookshelf and he honed that love of fantasy storytelling in the dark streets of Sasserine by way of the Upper West Side gaming group he joined in 2004. He moved his family (wife + two young kids) to Seattle in 2015 to work on D&D and he’s never looked back. You can find Greg on Twitter.
Shelly Mazzanoble will always play a magic-user. There. She said it. Enough pretending to want to break out of her comfort zone. She’s a magic-user. She’s also the brand lead for Avalon Hill and loves talking about that one time she played Diplomacy and SOMEONE (okay, it was Ben Petrisor) stabbed her in the back and took over her beloved Russia. If you enjoy tales of sorcery, board game upheavals, and reasons her 3 year-old is crying (HINT: She tried to make him eat a Nutella crepe), find Shelly on Twitter and Facebook.
