Matt Leacock and Rob Daviau gave a talk about the design process at GDC 2017:

It was pretty interesting, hearing about the emotional beats and how they videotaped their playtesters. In the talk they allude to things in general terms, but try to avoid directly spoiling the game.

(For some reason the slides aren't posted.)

Rob Daviau also gave a separate talk on Legacy games:

Although Matt and Rob were pretty thorough in their redactions, it's worth being aware there are some visual spoilers between 16m20 and 17m00. The audio's safe, though.

It was a good talk. I'm glad GDC did a real Board Game Design day, I think it was pretty informative and interesting. I'm not sure what the ratio of "video game developers looking for information" was vs. the number of "small devs who want to get into board games," but the whole day (except for one talk) was full of good information.
