Diverse Topics and Content

My favorite thing about this podcast as an amateur board game designer is the content about things I hadn’t even considered. Lots of podcasts will offer help with mechanics and Kickstarter, but this one covers the legal aspects of gaming and how to protect your board game baby. The most fascinating episode that changed my perspective on how I am handling things was on taxes with a CPA. Starting a business can be overwhelming. I’m learning as I go, and this podcast is helping.

Game Designers Can Avoid Making Legal Mistakes By Listening

If you are trying to Kickstart or self publish games, you really need to listen to whichever episodes are relevant to your project - there’s a lot that lay people don’t know or have misconceptions about. Thanks for starting this podcast Zachary!

Great Perspective on the Business Side of Games

Zach does a great job of creating interesting conversations with people in the gaming industry. I like that Zach tries to highlight the business side that often gets overlooked. Not only is it interesting, but the podcast helps me learn what will be needed to pursue my dreams as a game developer. Keep up the great work!!
