Two Bards Podcast Episode #101 mentions RPG Research and the RPG Research Trailer...

Two Bards Podcast Episode #101 mentions RPG Research and the RPG Research Trailer fund-raiser to help extend the geographic range of research on the therapeutic and educational aspects of all forms of role-playing games (tabletop, live-action, and computer based). 

Scott C. Brown of The Gamers: Dorkness Rising and The Gamers: Hands of Fate (and many other projects), hosts usually with Andy Dopieralski, this episode is with with special guest: musician & composer for the Gamers soundtrack, Steve Wolbrecht. Give them a listen: (note: often "adult" language/topics). 

Thanks for the mention Scott!. 
Just to clarify, he was unsure on some of the details: I am nearing completion on my Bachelor's Interdisciplinary degree in Recreation Therapy, Music Therapy, Neuroscience, & Research Psychology at Eastern Washington University (EWU). 

After my two internships (Rec Therapy & Psych), I will sit for the Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist (CTRS) exam (I am already a registered Recreation Therapist with Washington - which provides state Health Department oversight and disciplinary resources). I hope to go on to at least a masters degree, and potentially a doctorate, but still only an undergrad right now. 

Scott C. Brown, you and I first met when you and Christian Doyle were here in Spokane performing at a local coffee shop years ago, I had my three sons in tow (I'm a single full time parent), and you guys were juggling your usual humor with trying to moderate your topics/language since they were still young then. That help jog your memory? :-)  I was then at ZoeCon I (and 2) and was Pirate #2 and a "Cass Fanboy" extra in The Gamers: Hands of Fate (donor), so we ran into each other a few times during shooting and such.

Populations I have worked with so far in a TR capacity and some RPG-related efforts with these populations: Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD toddlers, youth, & adults), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), at-risk youth, Cerebral Palsy (CP), the Deaf & Hard of Hearing communities, and many others. 

So far I have been limited to the Spokane area, with some outreach in the Seattle & Tacoma areas, but I keep running into issues with facilities having space and resource issues. This RPG Research Trailer would solve a multitude of issues to benefit a wide range of populations. I can show up at a facility or home, and have everything right there in the trailer ready to go. It is specifically designed to be wheelchair friendly since many of those I am working with are often in wheelchairs. 
Please consider donating, and help spread the word. Thanks again Scott! I enjoyed the podcast. I am an amateur musician myself (and music therapist in training), so related to the conversation with Steve. Happy Gaming!
