We’ve got the work-week nicely under way. Monday is in the books, and so is about half of Tuesday. So we’re chugging along nicely, but what can help us keep a nice groove going? Maybe some gaming podcasts. Yeah, that might just be the thing.

In this episode, Paul, Antoine and Yaum have their usual hobby and games banter, then they interview Mathieu Fontaine about Figurines Québec, the new edition of his painting contest running in combo with ND Open next May. So sit back, relax, grab a paintbrush and enjoy the show!
Thanks to Heather’s introduction following a previous episode of the show, I’ve had a brilliant conversation with Rachel Thompson. Before falling into advertising and marketing Rachel was studying cultural anthropology and made Live Action RolePlaying games in the UK the main focus of her Masters. We had a great talking about her knitting, interest in science-fiction, comments about the recent trends in virtual reality headsets, loyalty for brand (or lack thereof), live action roleplaying and much more. I hope you enjoy!
