The Shark Bone Podcast was created by Devon J Kelley and began in early 2010 with Devon and Jarvis as hosts, later adding Aakin to the cast. The original show consisted of two sections, GM’s Reef and Great White. The first section was used to pull ideas from a bit of popular media, usually a movie, and apply them to the hobby of tabletop role playing games. The second section consisted of discussion of various rules, techniques and tools that the hosts found useful during role playing game sessions.
The original show ended in March of 2014 with 200 regular episodes released in a four year period. After several months with no episodes being released, Devon returned with a new show idea, the Shark Bone Podcast Sandbox.
The Shark Bone Podcast Sandbox is a show focused on building a world with multiple districts, each featuring a single genre. The show is released twice monthly, on the 1st and the 15th of each month. Each episode focuses on a single district, adding new locations and people to the cast of characters and locations already inhabiting the district. It also features an ever changing world, since in each episode, some of the characters inhabiting the district will have a chance to work towards and accomplish their goals.
To facilitate use of the world for the listeners, the details created and changed in each episode are compiled in the Shark Bone Podcast Sandbox Wiki.
