It took us a really long time to figure out a name. We (Christine) was getting really frustrated. We had a really long list of things we’d come up with but nothing sounded quite right for what we wanted to do, and also we didn’t want to step on anyone’s toes with a trademark issue, which meant scrapping our first name ‘Dinner and Dragons’.
Finally, on an overcast Saturday, Christine decided we needed to figure it out, and she and the players argued it back and forth for hours over text. Finally, Julian suggested that the next thing someone wrote be it and we just leave it at that. That next thing someone wrote was ‘My Butt Itches’. It was pretty funny. But it wasn’t the podcast name.
Then Julian, the voice of reason, somehow, in real life, if not in game play, suggested that Zephyr, our resident author, come up with a title- because he should be good at that, right?
Bang! First one out of the shoot: Quest at the Dinner Table.
It was… a name we could all agree on.
And that’s the tale of how a podcast got a name.
