Podcast Roundup

I know this post is going up at 2pm. But I'm not actually typing it at 2pm. I'm sure you all know that I'm not really frantically typing out posts and making sure to hit the "publish" button right as the hour strikes. No, I get these things put in ahead of time... so I can be frantically typing on some other article I need to write or working on a proofing project or something. :P
And while doing those other things, I'll tend to listen to some gaming podcasts. Like which? Like the following...

Today we have: Masters of the Forge: Altar of War Episode 4: Tidebringer Assault; Nerdherders Episode 16 (106): Arcade (on) Fire!; Mantic Radio Episode 10; After Ullanor Episode 11; It Will Not Die Episode 20: Ulterior Motives in Frostgrave; The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 26: The Great UK Games Expo Caper Part 1; Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 109: Kickstarters; Gamers Lounge Episode 138: Star Wars Rebellion & Legacy Campaigns; The Rolistes Episode 21: Tu Vuo Fa Il Ruolista (at Stratagemma, Florence); Rolling Dice and Taking Names Episode 120: Lorenzo il Magnifico, Emerson Matsuuchi (Century), Honshu, Element; The Cardboard Herald Episode 31: Jonathan Ying, former FFG in-house designer; The Secret Cabal Episode 136: Railroad Revolution, Railways of the World and a Short Topic Extravaganza; SAGA THORSDAY Episode 41: Irish Battleboard and Tactics Pt 1; Tales of Malifaux 57; Man Battlestations Episode 19: Battle of Midway 75th Anniversary; and Pint 'O Comics: Any Good Game Is Gonna End In A Fist Fight.

And, once again, we've made it to Tuesday. We've made it past the storms of Monday and can really get into the week. But, of course, at least I'm just wanting it to be the weekend again. Not that I dislike what I do. I love TGN. But... I mean... weekend! I'm sure even professional ice cream taste-testers and puppy-petters are excited for the weekend. Anyway, a way that I've found to make that weekend feel like it's getting here quicker is to listen to some gaming podcasts.
