PolyDoob ,

Genuine wargaming to the core

This podcast has taught me so much about the wargaming hobby and is a wonderful way to be introduced to the hobby.

This is not an polished podcast. It is a wargamer talking about a hobby he loves with great designers and others. The lack of polish gives this podcast character. Kind of like a Richard Berg game!

Outstanding!!!

Love your interviews with all the game designers like Mark Herman, Jim Dunigan, etc.

Amazing Show

I love getting the conversations with all of the various wargame designers. The podcast is highly entertaining and also has a great music collection.
