Five old friends of more than 20 years come together to produce a high quality, bi-weekly podcast about tabletop gaming of all kinds: board games, card games, miniatures, role-playing games and much more. In each episode you can expect board game reviews, gaming industry news and round-table discussions. The Founders, Jamie, Tony, Chris, Steve and Brian, each have varying tastes in gaming to provide a variety of viewpoints. Since 2011, over 100 full length episodes and now more with our new additional show, The Secret Cabal Express, The Secret Cabal has grown to one of the most successful tabletop gaming podcasts in the community. The Founders continue striving to offer irreverent entertainment, thoughtful commentary and enthusiasm about a hobby we love. Topics include discussion of games from publishers such as Asmodee, Cool Mini or Not, Fantasy Fight Games, Wizards of the Coast, Z-Man Games, Days of Wonder, Games Workshop, Plaid Hat Games and more.

Best Board Game Podcast.
There are no other board game podcasts that come anywhere close to the quality of this show. You can tell the Founders put their heart and souls into every aspect of the show, from the banter to the reviews to the short topics. It’s an inclusive podcast that has something for everyone. Out of the dozens of podcasts I listen to, I always save this one for last because it’s my favorite. Thank you!
This podcast has really gotten me through this long year, so glad to have found this group of misfits. Great laughs and great reviews.
What Every Board Game Podcast Should Strive For
I’ve been listening to the Secret Cabal for about 5 years now, and even though we have never met in person, they feel like friends. I love the lighthearted conversational style they have while still delivering great board game content. It’s just fun to listen to. While there are several founders on the show at a time, they often avoid talking over each other, and everyone has a unique perspective. This is the gold standard in board game podcasts in my opinion. Keep it up!
