Gelatinous Cube #6

August 19th, 2021

This Worm is Cosmic! In the latest episode of Rosie and Ad’s podcast about creating great TTRPG encounters, the team explore monsters as traps, zero gravity made simple, and the surprising importance of prog rock aesthetics. Yeah, they weren’t expecting that either.

Gelatinous Cube #5

July 29th, 2021

This time they go nose to metal nose with Rosie’s Mountain Witch encounter and discuss sneaking, witchy folklore, soft fantasy and fabulous chalets for Bond villain witches.

When dungeons go mad

July 19th, 2021

In Gelatinous Cube Podcast #4, Adam and Rosie explore TikTok’s favourite Backrooms as a D&D location and ask what happens when dungeons go mad. They discuss horror in TTRPGs, evil geometry and some very nasty yellow wallpaper.

Deep down in the dungeon

July 8th, 2021

Up from the depths of the dungeon bubbles the latest podcast in the Mindless Ones family, Gelatinous Cube from Rosie and Adam of Diane Podcast.

Every episode the DMing duo pull apart a tabletop RPG encounter of their creation: why it works, where it could – or did – go wrong during play and what’s cool about it. You’ll also hear from the Gelatinous Cube (aka Mark/Amy Poodle), for an acid dream take on the encounter concept.

Full, system neutral write-ups of the each encounter are available in the shownotes, alongside the Cube’s wild and weird reimaginings.

So if you love TTRPGs, grab your ten foot pole, don your +1 Headphones of Listening and fire up your pod-catcher.

See you in pit trap!

FRIENDS. This is Rosie speaking, you may know me from Mindless-sphere podcasts Diane or The Shadow Trap. I am here to ask you a question. Do you like video games? Do you like the stuff that’s in video games? Yes? Well then it’s nothing but good news!

getObject is a new podcast about things in games. Each episode me and my co-host Paul try to find the spirit of an object and the way it lives in games. The first three episodes are up so you can join us for discussions of KEYS, MAPS, and GORE.

Please enjoy, and if you do enjoy please rate and review us on your favourite podcasting service and follow us @getobjectpod. CHEERS!

Welcome to Diane… #29

There is a great conjunction occurring in time. Join Rosie, Adam and Bob as they look as one into episode 27 of David Lynch and Mark Frost’s Twin Peaks, sometimes known as The Path to the Black Lodge. As the end nears and Time and Space approach conjunction, our theme is Unification.

Two bad men combine to make a horse. Billy Zane and a certain Miss Horne make a beast of two backs, and Major Briggs returns the secret history of the 20th century to the sight of God.


Each embedding contains the possibility of a dis-embedding, as something that was at a supposedly inferior ontological level threatens to climb up out of its subordinated position an claim equal status with the level above.

LOADS of plans afoot at Diane HQ lately. The end of Twin Peaks is imminent but we feel like we’re just getting started. If you’d like to support us as we take our brains to another dimension then please kick on over to iTunes and gives us a fat five star review. Cheers!

You can do Diane on iTunes (US or UK), and over on Twitter and Tumblr. New Dianes are born on Wednesdays on Libsyn – and live out their lives here on Mindless Ones.

Next episode: BOBbing for apples

PS: Image this time via Giphy.

The woods around Twin Peaks have been speaking to us through logs and dreams. This week on Diane it’s over a week since Laura was murdered and a mouth has opened in the sky.

Working with the theme of black holes we consider gravitational pull, disappearing acts, and space. Creamed corn vanishes, Audrey is dragged from Cooper’s grasp, and alien messages are delivered.

Is this real, ladies and gentlemen, or some strange and twisted dream?

Expect: Messages from space, James’s singing and ruptures in reality


The moon may be high / Sha bop sha bop  / But I can’t see a thing in the sky / I only have eyes for you

I don’t know if we’re in a garden / Or on a crowded avenue / Sha bop sha bop

You are here / Sha bop sha bop / And so am I / Sha bop sha bop

Maybe millions of people go by / But they all disappear from view / And I only have eyes for you

Thanks to all our listeners, old and new, fake and true. We always want to hear from you!
