Episode 40 - Let‘s see who these skeleton men really are! w/Derek Traquiar
Update - 9/7/2021 11:26 EST - The wrong file was uploaded! If you didn't get the theme song over the opening of the episode, you have the raw file, which has a lot of extraneous talking as well as far too many "Ums". I have uploaded the cut version now. Sorry for the error!
Old Man Traquiar returns to the program to discuss the Kainan's Reapers faction. Boners in-bound! We discuss the fighters, Bro-tek strategies, Tit-the counters, how to play them Bro-fessionally, how to make good use of the Bro-jectives, and more. Enjoy, Bro.

Good analysis of the game along with good interview guests. Format is a bit long which is good / bad depending on the time I have.
Very thoughtful commentary on Warhammer Underworlds and great that they interview other games. Be prepared to pause the podcast though to look up cards if you are a newer player or don't have a full collection (although this show does that better than some others). Sometimes the two co-hosts accidentally talk over one another, but it is nothing serious. The main thing is that the content contains some very interesting analysis.
Thank you and keep it coming
Great podcast focused on Underworlds. The team is providing wonderful content and helping build an enjoyable gaming community.
