Our special guest this week is Kirk Hamilton, host of the podcast Strong Songs. What makes a song great? Is it the "thump, pop, and sizzle" of the drum groove, power chords, lush 7ths and 9ths? Kirk uses music theory, history, and isolates patterns to break down songs you've heard before and help you understand WHY they're great.

This week we kick back and talk about what we saw at PAX East 2022! It's the first time the gaming convention is back in Boston after the pandemic cancelled the last two events and it was a ton of fun!
This week we are joined by T. Caires, who is now working with Snowbright Studio, on games like Teatime Adventures and Birds of a Feather: Western North America.
This week, we welcome Deon Mixon, creator of a game called Design Eye, a graphic design education board game that is all about creativity - "for people with great ideas".
We answer a listener question about how we got started with reviewing family board games. Then we suggest a few dexterity games to spice up your building and flicking.
We talk about five of our favorite filler games for families - games that will make you think and help your kids learn, but play under 30 minutes and are fairly portable.
We are excited to welcome Matt Riddle to the show. Matt is the co-designer of over a dozen games, including Fleet: The Dice Game, Subastral, and Three Sisters - and we're going to ask him about all of them!
Introduce your kids to direct two-player battle games, where you try to eliminate the other player. No reading? No problem with our first game.
