Better Than College

I am a new/aspiring designer, and it's been about 6 years since I took my first wobbly steps onto the path. Ludology is one of the first sources of information I found about game design theory, and has been the core of my design education ever since. I listen religiously, and I learn something new from every episode. If I ever wind up making something professional of this design hobby, I will owe my success to Goeff, Ryan, Mike and Gil, and all of their amazing guests.

Clever, Inciteful, Unique

Ludology is unique amongst the multitude of gaming podcasts. The hosts consider topics about gaming design. The show is often more a philosophical discussion about why we enjoy certain things or find particular modes of compeittion appealing than a discussion about specific games. I am delighted when I find this in my feed.

Game design education

As a board game designer myself, I always get tremendous value from the time I spend listening to Geoff and the various co-hosts he has had on Ludology over the years. This is a show that I almost always listen to as soon as it shows up in my feed.
