That's a Palm Pilot on the left, and a pink iPod mini on the right. Yes, I've been doing BGTG that long!

My little podcast pushes forward into it's 15th season, wow! Of course, it's clear that Boardgames To Go is proudly rooted in the past, both in my outlook on boardgames and in my production methods for getting the show to listeners. Nonetheless, the audience numbers are still strong. I'm sure some people drop off over time, but they are replaced by new subscribers. Some of them even surprise me to say they go back and listen to the archives. That makes me smile--that's why those episodes are still out there. Whether you're a new listener or one of the diehards who've been with me from the beginning, welcome!

Opener: Stories about the podcast

I pushed back an interview show I have coming next* in order to open the 15th year(!) of this podcast with a solo episode. In it, I reflect a little on the podcast and (re)tell some stories about it. Then I launch into a LONG list of games I've managed to play at three recent events: EsCon 2019, SoCal Games Day #76, and an extended weekend boardgame cruise with some buddies. In those events I played a mix of old favorites, some new-to-me superfillers like I prefer, a few longer games, and some that have some hype/hotness about them. See? Even I play those trendy titles sometimes, kickstarted or not. As you'll hear, I sometimes like them!

Closer: I always say, "Thanks for listening," and today I mean that more than ever. I wouldn't keep doing the podcast if not for the positive feedback I receive from my audience. You all make it worth the labor of love.

-Mark

* Spoiler alert! It's with David Harding, the designer/publisher behind Grail Games.
