Exploding Dice Radio

It's that weird, interim time between Christmas and New Year's. I've been enjoying a bit of a vacation, though it's not been everything I expected (hooray for sudden $500 car repairs for Christmas! Whee!), but it's been good to unwind. It seems most game companies are taking some time off, too. As you can tell from the bit of silence here (the news room isn't exactly flooded at the moment). Don't worry, the site's still going strong. We're taking the opportunity to rest and recoup some. Anyway, as you wait out your midnight celebrations, maybe tune in to some gaming podcasts.

On the dial we have: Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode 79: Eberron with Keith Baker; Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode 80: A License to Game: An Hour with Ryan Dancey (originally recorded in 2014); Meeples & Miniatures Episode 283: Gaming Review of 2019; Game Classy Episode 202: Rise of Game Classy; Polyhedron Collider Episode 76: The Best Games of 2019; Tabletop Talk Episode 53: Playing Malifaux Online: Vassal with Dan Brown and Steve Johnston; Tabletop Talk Episode 54: Why Ray (and you) Should be Playing Marvel Crisis Protocol; Exploding Dice Radio Episode 13; Blight and Boon – A Godtear Podcast Episode 19: Organised Play Isn’t Just Tournaments; The D6 Generation Pip Episode 33: 2019 Prediction Results; The D6 Generation Pip Episode 34: 2020 Predictions; Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 161: The Taverns of Tiefenthal; The Secret Cabal Episode 197: Sanctum, Auztralia and Our Christmas Wishlists; and The Offline Gamer Episode 44: Top Games of 2019.

Hello, Tuesday. It's shaping up to be a busy week, which means that hopefully it'll go by quick. So as I work on gaming stuff, let's also listen to some gaming stuff with some podcasts.

On the dial this week we have: Game Classy Podcast episode 182: Another failed Kickstarter; The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 57: Pulsar 2849, Zoocracy, Tiny Towns and a lot more Root; Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 189: Top 5 Movies/Tv Shows/Video Games That Need a Board Game; Exploding Dice Radio Episode 12; The Secret Cabal Episode 177: Wendake, Gaslands and Player Interaction; The D6 Generation Pip 13: Captain Con 2019 Event Report; and Geeks of the North Episode 65: Ramblisode.

Monday has come and gone. Tuesday is here for a while longer. The Work Week does its thing as we make our way back to the weekend, where I'll be celebrating Free RPG Day by playing RPGs and streaming it for everyone to point and laugh at. :P
But before I get to my streaming, it's time to listen in on some gaming podcasts.

I hope everyone out there had a good Christmas. With any luck, you got some new games and models. For those really fortunate, you've maybe got this week off. So while you're assembling those figures and reading those rulebooks over, let's give you some gaming podcasts to listen to as well. Or, if you are headed back to work, you don't have to still hear holiday music, even though that's passed.

We're firmly on our way into the new work week. And, of course, I'm looking forward to the weekend. The past couple have been pretty busy, so I think I'm gonna take it easy this upcoming Saturday. Might still get some gaming in, though. We'll see. But before that, we need to actually get to the weekend. To help the time go by, here's some gaming podcasts for you to listen to.

Monday is done and Tuesday is well underway. We're also at the start of a new month. August is a big deal for many of us gamers, as it means Gen Con. I know I want it to get here. Perhaps listening to some gaming podcasts will help time speed by so we can get to Indy. Can't hurt, anyway.

I don't know about you, but my Monday went by in a flash. It seemed I'd just clocked in when it was already almost time to go. But having a very busy day will do that. And that means this whole week is going to rush by, since I'm certainly busy. And while I work on these various proofing and writing projects, I've got some gaming podcasts to listen to.

It's Tuesday. We've made it through the "worst part" of the week and can focus on moving ahead towards next weekend. I'm doing my part to make the day better here at the office by bringing in Magic Cookie Bars. And it seems that karma is paying me back in kind. The settling in to the new office also continues. We have things like our refrigerator again. So that's nice. Anyway, to help move the week along (Game Day at the library this Saturday, so I'm ready for the week to go by as fast as possible), here's the regular stack of podcasts to listen to while you work.
