Interesting indeed

Ben’s podcast is always very interesting. His guests naturally feel like they can talk about anything which makes the episodes a pleasure to listen. And he lives in Berlin which is an implicit bonus.

I would like to be stuck on an island with Ben

I really like both the quick fore well thought out reviews and the bigger moain episodes where you really get under the skin of the guests. A really interesting podcast. Brilliant stuff

Fabulous podcast

I was sceptical of the format but I am totally won over. The research and the planning that goes into each episode is thoroughly evident. It is a joy to hear an interviewer ask concise, thoughtful questions and to actually listen to the answers without interjecting with their own point of view. The discussion of the games is interesting but it is the way that they are used to explore the life and backstory of the interviewee that is so clever. Desert-island disks with board games could not have been done better. Well done!
