The Complete Podcast Transcripts

Learning to create a unique, immersive setting one podcast episode at a time.

A guide for authors, gamers, and hobbyists

World building strategist Randy Ellefson turned his successful book series, The Art of World Building, into a popular podcast, with episodes loosely drawn from each book in the series. The Complete Art of World Building Podcast Transcripts brings together every episode, previously only available in volumes 4-6.

More improvisational and freewheeling than the books, the episodes delve into more details about everything. From Creating Life, he discusses gods, species/races, plants, animals, monsters, heroes, villains, and even the undead. From Creating Places, he covers how to invent planets, continents, sovereign powers, settlements, history, maps, and more. From Cultures and Beyond, he examines inventing names, organizations, armed forces, cultures, and more, including magic, educational, legal, communication, and health systems.

No other world building podcast provides transcripts you can take with you.

Build better, faster.
