I love this podcast. I found your podcast via a YouTube search for a game review (sorry, I can’t remember which one!), which led me to your videos on Dice Tower. Blog, podcast, WHAT?!?!?
I’ve got a decent collection of games and a 21 year marriage at this point. The kids are no longer (were they ever?) interested in tabletop gaming and it’s something I enjoy a lot. My wife will indulge me from time to time. I’m sure you get that a lot. Anyway, your show is a great alternative to most anything else I’m listening to during my commutes to and from work. Additionally, the fun banter you both share communicate a deeper love for each other than many couples experience and I find it refreshing.
I don’t know how you’re doing this while raising littles at home! Awesome job!
This podcast really has taken their feedback over time and has become a great podcast!
Fun podcast that makes me want to play board games more.
This is a fun, light hearted podcast about board games but it still gives great content. I enjoy the dynamic between Spencer and Lara. What pulled me towards this podcast was the fact it was a husband and wife gamer group like me.They have a game night grub segment that I found was a great, unique, addition to their podcast. I've put quite a few new games on my wish list after hearing their reviews on them. The podcast makes me excited and want to play board games more often which means it's doing its job. The production quality it good and I have no problems. Thanks Spencer and Lara please keep it up.
