My name is Giles Pritchard, better known (though by fewer people) as Baron Gilos Pritchardus the VIII.
I spent the first 9 months of my life engaged in the most rigorous process of self-development and refinement I have ever been through, it was during this process of self-improvement I grew the fingers with which I am typing this.
Some years after all that I completed a Professional Writing Course and then, when I realized that most writers were very poor, I completed a teaching degree and now teach as well as write.
I am the greatest dancer known to humanity, although I can only perform when on my own and when no one is watching and/or recording me. Thus, despite my heavenly talent for dancing, I have achieved little recognition by it.
If you obssess about me and want to know all the things I didn't have for breakfast (notice how I mock the establishment), you can catch me on twitter here: http://twitter.com/caradocp My Geek of the Week thread can be found here, for those curious...
I am the host, alongside Donald Dennis
, of the 'Games in Schools and Libraries' Podcast.
THE podcast about board, card and digital games, and the ways in which they can find a place in schools or at the local library. Hosting provided by the GamesforEducators website - http://www.inversegenius.com/gsl/

Here are the two other gaming Podcasts I was lucky enough to contribute to back in the day... The Dice Tower
: A popular podcast, run by Tom Vasel
and Eric Summerer
, on board and card games - I run a 'once every couple of episodes' segment called The Shed
(every Aussie bloke wants a shed!).
Update: Haven't been on the show in a while due to many other things. The show has a great variety and quality of contributors and I am trying to spend less time talking about games and more time playing them!
You might hear me every now and then though - it's a great show! On Board Games
: A Podcast, run by Donald Dennis, Erik Dewey and Scott Nicholson
, for gamers on board and card games, usually revolving around 'the roundtable' - an in-depth discussion of an episodes theme. James Smith
and I also run an occasional alternate show on Fantasy books and games called On Board Games: Out of this World
