I've been listening from the start. Do yourself a favour and listen to them all - you won't be disappointed. Brandon and his team do a great job.

Yeah I have to highly recommend, I've been listening from the start as well.

Some episodes are more focused than others but for the most part I really enjoy the discussion of the quests and new cards. I love to compare my opinion of the cards with theirs.

Around episode 25 or so the show hit a sort of low point, in my opinion, with a lot of profanity and off-topic discussion, but they've since got it back on track.

I can't believe KET triumphs over Boromir.... then again Boromir is made to discard, right?

I'm 2 hours into the Gencon episode and really enjoying it. Good coverage of the LOTR LCG news and spoilers. As someone who has wanted to go to Gencon but never had a chance it's great to hear what the experience is like. I'm hoping you guys talk about Netrunner as well but that hasn't happened so far.

For whatever reason my Podcast Addict doesn't find your podcast despite using that exact RSS feed.

There needs to be an easier way to access your older episodes.
