The Podcast that Persists

I could say a million positive things about this show. But all I really need to say is that, as someone who hosts their own podcast and subscribes to dozens of others, this is the only podcast that I never miss an episode of. Something about the chemistry between the founders and the Jamie’s passion as host makes this show feel like you’re just hanging out with your friends when you listen.

Best Board Game Podcast.

There are no other board game podcasts that come anywhere close to the quality of this show. You can tell the Founders put their heart and souls into every aspect of the show, from the banter to the reviews to the short topics. It’s an inclusive podcast that has something for everyone. Out of the dozens of podcasts I listen to, I always save this one for last because it’s my favorite. Thank you!
