IMPORTANT NOTICE! The contents of the final portion of this podcast have been edited from what originally aired, because I made a terrible mistake that led to abusive and potentially violent acts against innocent and marginalized people. As such, all names have been removed, though I've left the other content stand so as not to hide my other mistakes. If further edits are to be made (I am consulting with people smarter than me from the affected communities), they will be noted here!   Also, to those who are "defending" me by being demeaning, insulting or harassing to those who are rightfully angry/disappointed by my recent mistakes: STOP! I made real transgressions, I'm working to rectify them. If you disagree, you're NOT on my side! Please extend grace!

This is the first Rahdo podcast that I have listened to, and it was a lot to take in. But the information is greatly appreciated.

Rahdo keeps track of new games like a machine, keeping an eye on potential great games coming out. The podcast also offers discussion of top 10 lists of his YouTube channel and other board game related topics. Game and personal Q&A at the end, with the latter being skippable for a while now if desired.
