The D6 Generation Podcast


Podcast Roundup

The work week is firmly underway. I know I like to have some sounds going on beside the random clacking of keyboard keys and the conversations coming from the other offices. That's why I keep my regular list of gaming podcasts (as well as several groomed Pandora stations). Seeing as it is Tuesday, that means sharing a new crop of podcasts with you to hopefully make your week go by smoothly.

I've always preferred Mondays off to Fridays. I mean, sure, you still get a 3-day weekend either way. But, with a Monday off, it's a long weekend and then a short week. I like that more than a long weekend and then a regular week. You're already 1/5 closer to having some time off again. And to help things speed along even more, there's gaming podcasts to listen to.

This week we have: Man Battlestatsions Podcast Episode 22; Singled Out Episode 45: Talking Guild Identities; Meeples & Miniatures Episode 227: Firestorm Games; Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 121: Totality!; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 126: Gen Con 50 with special guest host, Rodney Smith from Watch It Played!; The Cardboard Herald Episode 43: Isaac Vega - Designer & Plaid Hat Games VP of Research and Design; The Secret Cabal Episode 142: Fate of the Elder Gods, Cry Havoc, Gen Con 2017 Post-Show and a Short Topic Extravaganza; SAGA THORSDAY 53: UK Northern Melee; and The D6 Generation Episode 220: Gen Con 50, Company of Iron Interview, & Play by Mob 2017.

Well, we're back. I'm guessing many of you noticed the lack of posts yesterday and earlier this morning. We were having some technical difficulties with the site. It was a peculiar little bug that was proving difficult to stomp. But stomped it was and so we can continue on. Man, yesterday was a really Monday-Monday. Oof, glad it's in the past. Time to look ahead, and for me, that means the weekend, and that means hoping it gets here quickly, and that means listening to some gaming podcasts to make the time go by.

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.

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.
