“It’s OK to be different!” is one of those lines you find a lot in geeky/nerdy/dark (or a mix of things) subcultures. Unfortunately there is / was a time in the life of each of, well, us, when we found out we were different but had not yet connected with like-minded people.
For some of us it was relatively easy to find people because of sheer luck or because they grew up in an environment where being different was actively encouraged. Personally, I was lucky enough to find people interested in RPGs in my class. For others, it was and is not that easy.
Strangely, I think the age of the internet has made it more difficult to find a niche and take root, if you are different from your peers. I will explain more in the podcast, please enjoy!
And yes, different is ABSOLUTELY OK!
