Ep 14: A Conversation With Michael Heron From Meeple Like Us

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.

0:00 - Accessibility

3:40 - Controversial parts of Meeple Like Us

9:47 - Limitations of internet platforms like Reddit and Twitter

Ep 13: Co-operative Games

(Apologies for the audio quality. I'm investigating what went wrong.)

Marc, Matt, and Orion discuss what makes co-op games unique, what problems can show up in the design, and how games overcome those problems.
