So what, exactly, is on this mysterious list when one of the Glitter Dice Podcast hosts rolls the d20 to choose the topic for each episode? People have been asking, so we’ve decided to give you a little hit regarding the possible topics we might be discussing each month. The list is numbered 1 - 20, and when a topic is discussed on the show, a new topic is added from a section of alternates for the next month. The list in its current form looks something like this:
