Great Big Table is a late-night conversation between two Midwestern geeks with dreams of world domination through board games. It's not a great plan, but it's our plan and we're sticking to it. Join as we plot to put a meeple in every pot- or at least on every table. Board game enthusiasts Jim and Adrienne Jones, talk about playing games with children, friends, and community groups. We discuss game reviews, game night strategies, building gaming groups and feedback from our experiments in trying to expand the hobby of table top gaming.

I love this show. Anyone with an interest in this hobby needs to listen in; you'll come away from each episode with at least a dozen new games to look up. I can't let myself listen while at work as I get too distracted taking notes! Kudos, you two. Excellent show.
It is really great to hear an informed female perspective on boardgames. The rapport between the host is warm and clearly loving. These guys really know what they are talking about. Really looking forward to hearing more.
