Interesting and Entertaining!

Very funny and doesn’t ramble like a lot of pods these days.

The best boardgame podcast

Informative. Entertaining. Structured enough that it doesn’t ramble, spontaneous enough that it’s never quite the same.

I’ve bought several games off of their reviews and they’ve been spot on with the pros and cons (and prawns).

Sk0L Fan ,

Greaet podcast

Love the banter and the thoughtful discussion about the games. Also really like that the podcast’s approach spotlights some older games that are often overlooked.
