LoloHusky ,

Big fan, hoping for better audio balance

Great high energy podcast for fans of board games. I love the short format where only a few games and one topic is usually covered. Keeps the discussion focused and never drags. Updating my comments on audio as it seems as of 2023, audio imbalance has been worked out. Annie’s comes through at the same level as Crystals now and makes for a much more enjoyable listening experience.

One of my favorites

They don’t just provide awesome board game reviews, they’re also actively supporting inclusiveness in the board game community.
