Better late than never, the Ice Cream for Everyone Podcast is finally back!
Thanks to a chance encounter for International Tabletop Day at the Chicago Public Library, I met Randy and got to play test his pirate board game, Scoundrels. It was great fun, so we got talking and I invited him to be on the podcast.
I didn't know at the time that he happens to work from the Cards Against Humanity office and co-working space, so I got a visit and we were able to record in their studio, which was unusually high quality for me. I'm looking forward to having the rest of my recording equipment shipped.
Randy is a video games artist by trade and we had a great conversation about what is recommended to have a successful career in gaming, how Randy got into games, what his inspirations are, and how he started working on his board game.
If you enjoy the episode, please take time to give it a rating and a review on iTunes / iPhone podcast app (or your favourite podcast app), this only takes a few minutes and it really gives more visibility to the podcast so others can find it.
I am getting back in a regular publishing schedule and my goal is to have an episode published every other week, at least twice a month. I am back contacting people to have conversations with and am looking forward to sharing them with you!
