    My Feet Hurt - Hugs Please - UKGE Special

    This was a struggle because Luke was very tired after getting back from UKGE, so naturally we chat about cannibalistic chocolate bars, Role playing Games, being Bob Mortimer, and mention in passing Mark Cooke, and UK Games Expo which was something that happened.

    TeeCeeGees - May The Force Of Disney Compel You

    AKA The Boy who made me livid..
    Not everyone is here to let you down. Unless that person is Luke Prior, who aims to let you down from the moment you start recording. Join us as we plumb the depths of light entertainment and confuse the majority of our audience with a mixture of 80s BBC comedy shows and brand new card games. We're so cutting edge that we're talking Lorcana and Star Wars Unlimited MONTHS after it came out, but we also chat about the following nonsense.

Fantastic Pod for board gamers

These guys are incredibly entertaining while providing real conversation and insight into the ever-changing world of board games. Each episode tends to have a different flavor to it if they are having a guest on or just talking about certain games. That being said, there are no dull episodes. If you are interested in board gaming and learning about new games with a scottish twist then dive right in to this phenomenal podcast.

Perfectly lovely

Richard has a wonderful way of connecting with his guests and an easy style with a truly calming voice. As an interview format it is rare in the boardgaming podcast arena. He and his guests are also quite progressive in their social and political views and they are not afraid of it. I feel welcome.

If he had a patreon, I’d pay him monies.
