Back at NARIX 2014, Tifereth led a discussion on all the things we don't talk about in rope bondage. How can we create an environment that is more open and honest and less dangerous (because, as Ojipan mentions, it's never "safe") for everyone?

This podcast was made possible by sponsorships from Bastard Ropes and Maui Kink. Please check out their sites, and consider becoming a patron of the Ropecast yourself!

Graydancer went to the North American Rope Exchange and all he got was three outstanding podcasts! This is part one, on-the-spot interviews with many of the organizers and attendees. You get to hear the hum of ropesters in the background as people talk about their experience, their plans, and most of all their rope.

What? Another interview with a rope maker? Yes, but this one goes far afield. ABMann is a self-identified nerd, introvert, persistent self-improver, Hitchin' Bitches ally, and pen connoisseur. He talks about process, practice, kink, and of course rope in this interview.

You can see ABMann's rope at BunnyRope.com, and read more of his writings at his blog or his tumblr. Wadsworth, the company mascot pictured above, has a pretty hot tumblr as well.

Hedwig has a long and in-depth interview with internationally renowned kinbaku artists Kanna and Kagura.

They cover not only the usual questions about rope training, education, and performance, but also deeper topics such as what goes into an intense rope partnership and Kanna's experience coming out as transgender in the Japanese rope community. They also talk about rope injury, the roots of hojo jutsu, and the fun of "going hard" (semeru).

It is one of the most touching and personal interviews ever put on the Ropecast, and we are immensely grateful to Hedwig, Kanna-san and Kagura-san for sharing it with us. Below is an example of their performance style.

In order to preserve the words of the bakushi and model in their own voices, this podcast was produced with minimal editing. Feedback? E-mail Graydancer!
