Description

A podcast all about boardgames, hosted by Richard "Rahdo" Ham
100 Episodes
Reverse
Timm Metivier (the owner of Meepleville in Las Vegas, as well as showrunner of the Dice Tower West convention) and I sat down for another back and forth discussion, and while the last one did about 30 minutes on Black Lives Matter, this one goes much deeper on another very non-boardgame subject: gun violence. Fair warning, no boardgaming in this one!

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.
