Our Turn Podcast is made up of a group of women who are pulling out the chairs around the table and inviting everyone to sit down and join the game and the conversation. Gaming is a fun social hobby that invites conversation, interaction, and connection between people of diverse backgrounds and points of view. Sitting across the game table and engaging in an entertaining pastime can break down barriers and open up lines of communication. We plan to use this podcast to be a positive, inclusive, and active voice in the gaming industry and the gaming community-at-large.

Just the gaming pod I needed

I'm glad I've found this gaming podcast. I've listened to an assortment of episodes and have enjoyed listening to them. Cathy, Sara, et al. cover the kind of games I'd be interested to play and cover topics I find very informative. In fact I habitually stop what I'm doing so I can write down a game to buy in the future. They talk on a level anyone can follow along, point out if a game is family friendly, and speak in a friendly, conversational manner that makes me wish I was a part of the conversation. One suggestion I have would be to list the retail price of games and its availability (my jaw dropped at the price for Scythe). I wouldn't mind hearing a little bit more about kickstarter games on the podcast. Overall, this podcast has been a great find. Thanks.

Awesome podcast

These ladies are doing a fantastic job of promoting diversity and inclusion in the gaming hobby. They are very knowledgeable about the games they talk about, have excellent interviews and make me laugh from time to time. As a man I am proud to share my hobby with these women and welcome one and all to join me at my game table.

Keep up the great work ladies!
