66 - Will Jones from Encounter Roleplay - making a living from roleplaying


Guest: Will Jones of Encounter Roleplay

Will is a D&D S*x Icon and the creator of the Twitch, YouTube and podcast channel Encounter Roleplay, specialising in live streams and podcasts of folks playing roleplaying games. The channel has built a reputation on a flavour of play where the player characters aren't adventurers so much as desperate folk struggling to do right in harsh, relentless realms.

Encounter Roleplay has allowed Will to be self-employed for the past two years via Twitch affiliation, YouTube ad revenue and Patreon backing.




Host: GM Radio Rob

Rob Farquhar is a podcaster, voice talent, writer and, most importantly, game master of tabletop roleplaying games. Previously hosted The Paid to Play Podcast, a career podcast about getting paid to do what you love doing, and Only In Death, an actual play podcast using Deathwatch, a roleplaying game in the Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay line.
