Mike and Dan decided that it'd been too long since they chatted to Matthew Jude and so asked him if he wanted to record a podcast.  And he did.

There's no overarching theme this episode, do you'll not be getting the laser focused and on topic podcast you are used to.  However the guys do get through at least 4 listener questions over the course of nearly two hours, and there is even some board game content there if you really dig for it.


In this episode Mike and Dan talk about overly affectionate dogs, thinning down collections, and The A Team.

They are also joined by Robert Geistlinger to talk about various aspects of professionalism in board game media.
