Well, as you are reading this, I will be sitting in a repair shop waiting room, getting a coolant leak on my car fixed. Fun times. In order to drown out the sound of daytime TV that’s playing, I’m going to take the time to listen to some gaming podcasts. If you’re in a dull and mentally-draining place like I am, perhaps you can stave off total brain-death by listening to some engaging podcasts as well. Which ones? Well, I’m glad you asked.
In today’s Podcast Roundup we’ve got: Game Classy 106: Really Stupid Looking Wulfen, Man Battlestations Podcast Ep 3: Class “C” Naval Games & Carrier Ops, Plaid Hat Games Podcast Ep 197: Just Do It – Make the game, Epic Gaming Night Podcast Ep 39: Real Time, Meeples & Miniatures podcast Ep 164: Lords & Lands/Wargames Illustrated, and News of the North – 2016-02-02.
