Dice Tower Network Podcast: The Geek All-Stars

The Geek All-Stars is a podcast about board games, card games, video games, MMO's, movies, TV, and anything else that comes to our minds. Each episode contains a varied group of "All-Stars" from the geek world. Join Dan/GeekJock to discuss the topics of the day. We are joined, on a regular basis, by industry insiders such as Dice Hate Me Games' Chris K, video game developer/journalist Josh Augustine, prominent bloggers such as Tom Gurganus, and (of course) guys with more games then we care to count (as in Adam O.) I cannot promise we will always stay on topic, but I can promise we will have a good time!
