    Glancy runs over time on almost every topic and I couldn’t possibly be happier. He’s a fascinating dude, especially in the RPG industry which is generally full of uninteresting nerds.

    After three days commuting with TUO team and Adam Scott Glancy in my passenger seat, I still can’t imagine more entertaining company as I drive to work and back home. What an episode!
