It's been going for a couple of months now, but I wanted to see if I would stick with it (and if there was any interest).

I've created a feed for an audio version of the board game reviews and vlogs on the Drive Thru Review channel. For now, it's just a straight drop of the audio from the videos. Enough people said they wouldn't mind just listening to the audio standalone, and it's not too much trouble for me, so I've put up a feed on iTunes and elsewhere for folks to download.

This week the feed passed 100 downloads per episode, so at least some folks have found it useful.

I've listened to a few of these after giving them some distance and I'm not 100% happy with the results, but I could see them being useful for some folks. I do plan on re-investigating the format and I'm open to suggestions.

Right now, I don't plan on going back and adding older reviews, but I might one day.

The live Hangouts will stay in the "Drive Thru Live!" feed, and I won't be adding anything like iOS reviews or other random videos to the Drive Thru Review Audio feed, just straight reviews and vlogs (Top 10 lists etc...).


To find audio versions of my board game reviews and vlogs, head over to the Drive Thru Review Audio feed. You can subscribe to the feed in multiple locations.

I love the audio format, and only sometimes get to watch your excellent video reviews (I've got 3 little kids). But I have 9 hrs/day at work to listen to audio podcasts! Joel, have you ever listened to "Planet Money" by NPR?...it's fantastic!

Thanks for all the amazing work you do! thumbsup
