Hello, Tuesday. Glad to see you. How’re things going with you?
It’s sort of that mid-December thing where Thanksgiving’s a couple weeks past, but we’re still a couple weeks until Christmas. Hopefully, you’re not hitting Holiday Burnout. But, if you are, we’ve got something to occupy your ears so you don’t have to hear about grandma getting run over by a reindeer again.
This week, we’ve got: Meeples & Miniatures Episode 236: Gangs of Rome; Singled Out Episode 54: Steamcon Keynote Round Table; Singled Out Episode 55: Designing Models With Sherwin And Russ; Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 135: Two Players!; Guild Ball Tonight Episode 72: What Happens at Hall Party Stays at Hall Party; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 133: Whistle Stop, Battle for Rokugan, and PAX Unplugged 2017; The Secret Cabal Episode 148: Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate, Defenders of the Last Stand and A Short Topic Extravaganza; The Offline Gamer Episode 27 – All Snowed In…; The Cardboard Herald Episode 57: Big ol’ PAX Unplugged Group; Man Battlestations Episode 25: 2017 Year in Review; and News of the North – 2017-12-12.
Tuesday. I know that Arthur could never get a handle on Thursdays. I feel that way about Tuesday. Sure, the week’s well and started, but it’s like Monday 2: Mon Harder. Not that I think it’s particularly as bad as Monday, but still, it’s a really long way from the weekend. Gotta make it get here as soon as possible, and some gaming podcasts can hopefully help with that.

The work week continues on. We’ve made it through Monday and are firmly entrenched in Tuesday. If you’re like me, you’re looking forward to that next weekend. I find that listening to gaming podcasts helps out with that. And that’s just what we’ve got for you here.

So, you’ve got your reviews. Let’s move on to Podcasts. I’m sure many of you are going to be in a bit of a haze after the week that was Gen Con. So as you drag yourself back to the office and have to once more get into the swing of the office scene, here’s some podcasts to help you make the work week go by a bit quicker, and give you some “hair of the dog” in terms of gaming.

I don’t know what it is about Tuesday that I like. Maybe it’s just that it’s “not Monday.” But it feels like the week’s good and underway. Like, “that mess yesterday’s over with. Bring on the rest of the week!” Maybe that’s just me, but I like Tuesdays. Whatever reason it might be, Tuesdays also include getting together podcasts to help you through your work week.
