Garrett's Games and Geekiness

This is the blog for the Garrett's Games and Geekiness weekly podcast. Started at the end of January 2006, Garrett's Games and Geekiness is my (Doug Garrett's) weekly podcast. Shelley, my wife, and I are joined occasionally by friends Ric Bretschneider, Greg Parker, Mark Jackson, Scott Alden, and game designers.
