Between Turns Podcast Episode List
Earlier this year, fellow BGG User John Middleton and I decided to launch a podcast. We didn't want to do strictly a review show since that need has already been wonderfully serviced by a whole slew of folks, both in podcast form and on YouTube. We also didn't want to simply rehash all the existing tropes like "What did you play last week" and "Top 10 Top 10's" list. Those are fun and I'm sure we will visit that stuff every now and again, but we didn't want that to be our format.
Instead, we wanted to go a little deeper. If we review a game, we want to talk about why the game belongs on your shelf or if it doesn't, for that matter. Either way, we want to talk about what makes it noteworthy in our minds. Often times this can have little to do with mechanics, balance, components or artwork and more to do with how it stirs your imagination. Whatever the wrinkle is that grabs our attention, that is what we want to talk about.
We also like to look at big picture stuff. Philosophical thoughts about what certain games are illustrating or practical things like navigating game night. We hope these conversations are as interesting for you to listen to as they are for us to record. John is quite the orator, so we hope his eloquence can help unlock the assorted grunts and monosyllabic offerings I throw out as I try to bring my fairly broad gaming experiences to bear. Most of all, we hope the show is engaging. My favorite podcasts are the ones that make me want to pick up the phone and call in, to support or debate the hosts. If our show can achieve that for all of you, I think we will call it a success.
These podcasts are also available on iTunes, Stitcher and directly from the RSS feed http://betweenturns.libsyn.com/rss
Whichever route you take, if you enjoy the show we'd appreciate it if you subscribed and left a review. As always, let us know what you think here or join our Between Turns guild and let us know there.
