Introducing "Conversations with Creative Anachronists"
Transcript [00:00:05] Greetings. My name is Anna Troy, but in the Society of Creative Anachronism, I´m known as the Honorable Lady Anna de Byxe. Welcome to Conversations with Creative Anachronists, where you can talk about your passions within the SCA. Do you miss those spontaneous conversations one can have at an Event. You sit down next to somebody, they're making something interesting and you have no idea what they're doing. So, you ask and after a while, not only have you got a new friend, but you've learned a whole new craft. I miss that kind of conversation. So I thought, why not start a podcast?  I'm a member of the Shire of Gyllengran, in the Principality of Nordmark, in the kingdom of Drachenwald and I've been playing this game on and off since the mid 90s. Outside of the SCA, I work as a librarian up in northern Sweden. My ambition is to put out at least one episode a month. Thank you for listening to this episode of Conversations with Creative Anachronists. Would you like to join me in a conversation? Or do you have any questions? You can use the voice message function in Anchor. You can email me at One word ends with an "s" at Gmail dot com, or you can message me via the Facebook page. Until next time, bye for now. --- Send in a voice message:
