Love this P cast and how it has evolved!

Michelle & Zach give wonderful insight to a vast array of board games (from 2 different perspectives), while injecting their beautiful personalities;). I look forward to hear their expert analysis as well as learning more about their personal lives!

Keep up the great work!
