You can listen to the full interview HERE.

The quote in the title is in regards to wrestling at House of Hardcore in Philadelphia this weekend. (Debuting LIVE on Twitch) Here's the full excerpt:

"I have the utmost respect for Tommy. I've said he's one of the few guys left in the industry whose word actually has some value. And that means a lot, especially concerning all the positions he's held over the years. He cares about the wrestling fans, he cares about the wrestlers, he cares about the industry. That's important. From day one when he started this venture, I told him if I was available, I wanted to be a part of it. And he expressed the same back. I appreciate that he sees the value I bring to a promotion. He's gonna allow me to go out there and be who I am and let me go out there and perform from my heart with my passion and not put roadblocks in front of me, not tell me who I should or shouldn't be. I'm looking forward to this Saturday in The Arena in Philadelphia which has so much history to it. It's our first night on Twitch. It's free, you can watch it live. He's giving me a hot microphone and basically saying, "Hey, speak from the heart and say what you want." I'm looking forward to that opportunity."

Upvoted: [No Spoilers] Why’s no one talking about how great Honey Heist was? via /r/criticalrole

So, this past Thursday was one of my favorite CR episodes ever. Two goofball bear brothers, one DGAF honey badger, one loveable hero Trinket, and a raccoon’s cousin all tear into a festival in Westrun. HOLY CRAP THAT’S INCREDIBLE!

Marisha really nailed it with her choice of games (I DM regularly and much prefer streamlined games like FATE to number crunchers or those with a host of special rules for every character). And her descriptions were seriously GREAT. Like, as good as I’ve seen on any ep of CR. They were engaging and detailed without being longwinded.

Did she break a bunch? Sure. Because this was a honey heist of a bunch of bears being silly goofs with funny voices. Totally appropriate and added to the tone, imo.

I know that Marisha’s creative as all get-out (director and all), so this one kinda made me long for an actual campaign from her brain. I’d love to see the kind of stories she comes up with.

The players obviously rocked too. Flippin hilarious game.
