Help naming my new podcast

Hello all. I’m planning on starting up a little podcast to fill some time while my girlfriend is in Seattle for work for a few months. It will start with an in-character segment, which will usually be similar to Dr. Gerard’s lectures (but not always—I have a few things in mind) that describes and meth, urban legend or other bit of lore, then I will go “behind the curtain” and discuss how these could be used in the game or serve as inspiration. I’m going to get a good number of episodes recorded before it I put any online or pay for hosting, but there is a slight problem I need to take care of before it can do much recording.

I need to name it.

I’m terrible was naming things and having a hard time thinking up a good name that I like for the podcast. They all seem to come off as either too prosaic or more like something a writing inspiration podcast would have is a name rather than role playing inspiration podcast.

So far I have:
• Plot hooks
• Lore and inspiration
• Seeking inspiration
• Plot hooks 101: inspiration

So given that I’ll be targeting a very similar audience to the Miskatonic University podcast, but any suggestions or help would be appreciated.

I like 'plot hooks'. Its simple and gets to the point. Will you be focusing on horror RPGs or RPGs in general?

Re: Help naming my new podcast

I’m not planning to specifically focus on horror role playing games, but the type of plot hooks I think up, and the sources of inspiration I use naturally lend themselves to poorer role playing games so I expect they will there will be some bias in that direction. However I am planning on trying to diversify the sources so I’m not always using core urban legends and such.

I like Plot Hooks (or Plot Hooked Max :-) ) as it creates quite a strong visual for a logo or the like .... Imagine actual hooks :-)

Plot Hooks! - Ideas that get under your skin! Or

Plot Hooks! - How to reel your players in!
