Fun listening

Listened to them for awhile now - fun format of a fake radio show. They do a few little bits during the show and nice they offer two very unique views on games. Little things like good release notes help me know what to look for in the episode and the audio quality has gotten a lot better.

Fun format!!!

So many board game podcasts have such a similar format (almost as if their theme is pasted on). All The Bits stands out with such a playful take on the traditional format. In a world with computer generated everything, some old-school silly sound effects can’t help but make you smile and laugh. Great banter in good bite-sized chunks. Bit-sized chuncks??? 😁

Spot on!

Great podcast, and love that the two of them are local. They're all about busting out the classics, talking about the hotness, and I appreciate their unique perspectives they bring to the table.
