Brax is amazing!
I love every time this podcast shows up in my feed! I can't wait for more!
Meaningful topics. Have especially enjoyed recent podcasts pertaining to gamers getting older, evolving game tastes, etc. A lot of Brax's insights come from his years in Lotro; after playing and leaving the game after six years I find his views similar to my own.
Thanks for a great show
I tune in every morning on my commute from Worcester to Boston
