In this episode, Michael and I confront the age-old question: how much of a podcast can be made up of tangents before the tangents become the subject of the podcast?
Also in this episode we talk about Meeple Like Us and issues of accessibility in board gaming, a bunch of random political things, our favorite games, gender representation, ethical choices in video games, the state of criticism and if it’s okay for publishers to pay reviewers for reviews, and….Nazis?
It was a wild ride, but a tremendously fun discussion.
