Great Podcast especially for anyone who grew up in the 80s

Don't let the title fool you. Epic Gumdrop is a great podcast for gamers of all ages because they cover everything from older boardgames and video games/consoles to new modern CCG/LCG/RPG etc and video games. Their banter and wit is very reminicent of my own which may be part of why I like their podcasts (yes, plural. Oh? You didn't know they have more podcasts? Check out "Breaking Dads" and "All Sorted") so much. That and I'm their same age and find them easy to relate to. But as I said, it's a Great Podcast even if you're not a child of the late 70s/early 80s. Keep up the great work guys!

Jeff and James are the best

I am neither a dad, a hardcore gamer, or a man with a massive LEGO collection, but I love all of these guys podcasts because their conversations are just worth listening to. The recent history of Candyland was actually really fascinating! Keep up all the great work!
