About the Guest:
Kelen Coleman is a tv and film actress. You may have seen her in How to Get Away with Murder, The Newsroom, The Office, Big Little Lies, and Me Myself and I, among many others.
About 4-5 years ago Kelen and some other actress, musician, writer, & content creator/gamer friends decided to get together and learn how to play D&D. They were over the preconceived notion that D&D was "nerdy" or "for boys". They were all proud geeks & fantasy lovers, after all, so they took it upon themselves to learn and then film themselves as they dressed up and played a campaign. Wizards of the Coast found out about them and they have been collaborating ever since. Girls Guts Glory (as they call themselves) have now done many live streams, a podcast campaign, and are getting ready to launch a new campaign on their own twitch as well as D&D’s twitch channel.
You can see Kelen in 3 upcoming movies and on the future live stream. For more info, follow @kelencoleman & @girlsgutsglory on instagram/etc.

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 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.
