    After an (unintenionally) long delay, Episode 43 of the MBS Podcast is here! Greg and Andy catch up a bit, and then spend a little time looking back at 2019 and looking forward to what 2020 may have in store!
    This will unfortunately be the last episode for about 6 months, due to Andy's upcoming deployment. MBS will be back and better than ever starting in June/July 2020, so see you then!

    Ruckdog's Report Episode 7

    It's been a while since we've done a Ruckdog's Report! However, Andy has been reading (well, listening via Audible anyway!) the "Expeditionary Force" series by author Craig Alanson, and he just HAD to discuss it with Greg (who's also listened to the first couple of books in the series). Check out what we think in this edition of Ruckdog's Report. BE WARNED! This episode is full of spoilers for the first two books in the series!

Great Naval Wargaming Content

This is a well designed podcast to present naval wargaming content.
I like to hear about the new products as I wouldn’t go looking for that stuff on my own.
The reviews are solid and well structured. Featuring tabletop games and board games.
Only criticism is the design of the community poll, I could just go to the forum and read what everyone thinks, perhaps a more analytical approach to the data would be more interesting.
