Episode 65 — A Mighty Wind (Our Gamestorm Finale)

Episode 65 — A Mighty Wind (Our Gamestorm Finale)

gamestormOur second and final installment from our live Gamestorm sessions. Recorded first on the day, but a very difficult edit deems it airs last. A number of creative people grace the microphones, and we are joined by Jason Hancock of The Docking Bay 94: The Game Reviewers podcast in this joint effort. Film, fiction and gaming all feature here, with a special discussion of the new game March of the Ants.

For those who’re looking for our regular programming, we hope you enjoy this diversion. And never fear, our regularly scheduled programming will return in Episode 66.

Episode 64 — The Two Mikes, Live From Gamestorm

gamestorm

Welcome to our first remote broadcast, recorded live at Gamestorm in Vancouver Washington, Saturday, the 21st of March. This is a loose affair featuring two very witty guests, Mike Selinker (Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, Betrayal at the House on the Hill, and many others) and Michael Mindes (Owner of Tasty Minstrel Games).

After a false start, we get the buttons pushed correctly and the levels set as best we can, and we settle in to a lively conversation of many things board games and some things not. There’s a fair bit of chatter in the background as this was recorded in the midst of a reception, but if you pretend you pulled up a bar stool and were eavesdropping on a fun exchange, then all will be well. We hope you can all hear how much fun we are having. This was a blast.
