Welcome Back Harold!

A great pod cast to get in the overall vibe of the wargaming community using a line up of top tier designer to show where the community is heading.

Great show.

This podcast rekindled the interest in the hobby again. My driving interest waned during the early 90’s while starting a family but now with my wife and I becoming empty nesters, wargaming is roaring back. Thanks for riding shotgun for this encore.

More descriptive descriptions

The interviews are well done. My only recommendation is that the description include a little bit more on who the interviewee is. Include what they've designed or what is being discussed. This helps decide which podcasts to download and listen to and not have to look up who the interviewer is.
