Marc Specter ,

Great pithy news

The show presents pithy industry news in a timely manner. The Kickstarter coverage makes me scratch my head at times, as it doesn’t seem to be comprehensive. Regardless, I’ll listen to every show. Very good content.

Stay on Top of a TOWER of News!

This podcast is a great way to stay current with board game news in a half-hour format. It’s delivered with cheesy humor and warmth, which makes it a feel-good listen for me. Major news, crowd funding projects, new releases…this has it all

I can’t think of any other way I’d rather get my hobby news.
