I listen to a bunch of podcasts thanks to my 1 hour (one way) commute each day. So, I talked my wife Diane into giving it a go for a board gaming podcast about games that we feel are not as well known. The idea of the podcast is to examine games that deserve a second look and/or are desperately in need a reprint. The link is:

Give it a listen and let us know what you think.

I'm going to check it out, but it would help if you had a web page with a brief description of each episode.

Great podcast. I love to hear people talk about older games and the history of the gaming hobby. Such a large majority of BGG content is related to new games.

Based on your original post, it sounded like you had to drag your wife to the mic, but you two sounded great together.

This episode is about Crude: The Oil Game and a whole lot of other stuff.

First I want to thank Scott for the kind words. Yes, it was bit of a
hard sell to get Diane to the mic but, she seemed to have fun while we
recorded it. We both agree with you on the focus on new games but, I
think that the BGG's focus pretty much reflects what is going on in the
hobby in general. New games seem to be the focus of a large number of
gaming groups out there which is fine but, I do like to revisit games
that I consider classics on a regular basis as well. I'm also interested
in history in general and, as a result, take an interest in the history
of this hobby. Of course, given that I have lived through a lot
of what would be considered history in board gaming now, I try not to
let that make me feel old.

As far as content goes, would you all be happy if I gave an outline of
the episode here when I post the link? Switchpod isin't a terribly
easy site to work with but, it's free.


Nick
