About the Guest:


Greg Titian

Greg Titian is the host of the Youtube show called “How to Drink”. How to Drink is a show about making drinks and how to drink them! He lives in NYC, one of the centers of the cocktail universe, and even though he’s never worked in a bar he sure enjoys making and drinking cocktails. In addition to making drinks on his show, Greg also loves to talk about movies, video games, TV, books, whatever really. He makes classic cocktails, Tiki cocktails, new original cocktails, and pulls inspiration from wherever his mind wanders.

Although Greg keeps things pretty fast and loose and is prone to stream-of-consciousness tangents, he takes the production side of things very seriously. He has enjoyed playing D&D since its 2nd edition and will soon be starting and DMing his own livestreamed D&D campaign!

Greg Tito

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.

Shelly Mazzanoble

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.
