That would be the thing that Robert Martin is the figurehead of.

Nice job with the web site. Looking forward to the third pod cast.

I think the ameritrash term, everywhere it has ever been typed here on the geek, should simply be replaced by an image of a babe in an American Flag Bikini.

Let's see a show of hands.

Texas? arrrh

Steve... Great job on the show this time! The sound levels were just about perfect. I don't recall having to fiddle with my volume too much (or even at all) during the whole show, so good job there. Looks like you got that one just about settled. Also, you did a better job of describing the games, as I had a clearer idea of what they were about after you had finished talking about them.

The only constructive critique I could think of is that don't be so hasty to jump to a response while the person you're interviewing is talking. There was a few times when Rob started to answer, and then you cut right in with another question or comment before he could finish the thought. Despite that, it was a good interview.

But, yeah, good job overall. Very well done. Keep up the good work. Looking forward to the Barnes interview.

Another great Ultimate Podcast, listening to it I can't believe I ever sat through more than an hour of that other boring podcast that was basically two guys saying "I like board games. Do you?" over and over again and then some banjo music cut in.

I think we really do need to raise awareness about Cube Confusion in the hobby community...it's really scary because there's a lot of people who have it right now and may not even know. I was thinking that it might be a good idea to organize a Walkathon to raise some money or something.

This show just gets better each week!

I laughed, I cried, I blew my nose. A must hear experience for all gamers who want to purge their inner wooden cube demons or fantasize about hot Mexican cuties.

It's a wooden carving, usually of a woman with large, naked breasts, dripping with salt spray because it's affixed to the bow of a sailing ship.

Thinking about Martin in those terms is just...wrong.

I'm really enjoying the unique way to describe a game, by using a made up example of a session report. Keeps me much more interested..

I'll be the last person to belittle an Ameritrasher for not understanding the perfection of the cube. Instead I believe we should first educate them and try to expand their horizons. So I'll suggest a first step in understanding to all those AT'ers:

Education is fundamental. That's Kah-Nee-See-Ah

Knizia is actually one of the few "accepted" Euro designers of die-hard Ameritrashers. I'm guessing that's just because he has designed such a broad swath of game types and styles that some have just stuck even with the die-hardiest theme hound.

The show was good.

All of the vocal overlays were at a good volume. The Kung-fu Demo with the sounds in the background was great.

Keep them comming.

Re: The Ultimate Podcast Episode #3 is Here! New Site with R
Third episode and I have to say, at this point, I'm already growing a bit tired of the whole thing...

I enjoyed the first episode because it was unique, absolutely crazy and totally unexpected, but what more can you do with this beast to continue to make it something worth listening to???

I'm kinda' bored of the rants, the 'oh, so superior' attitude ("ULTIMATE" Podcast???), the "Arch-Villains", the samey music breaks (yeah, I get it, you like tequila and beer and you have a thing for Latin women), the forced laughter ("it's a suppository! Har-har-har!")), the faux machismo, the website that looks like Betsy Ross vomited in HTML (no mean feat for a lady who kicked the bucket in 1836), the voiceless and faceless "Bubbles" and the hypocrisy (you bash others, but you've made yourself an even larger target)!!!

However, that said, it may simply be that you're a friggin' genius and ALL of the above is a beautifully crafted act (even down to the drawl...) devil

All is not lost, though... We do seem to agree on having FUN when we play games, and that too many people take this whole hobby far too seriously, so there is that, anyway!

Now I'm not sayin' you should pack away the mic just yet... The interview with Rob was great (hell, I knew Rob back when he was just getting into the hobby out here in SoCal, so it was fun hearing his voice again), and I've enjoyed some of your game overviews, but a lot of the other stuff is beginning to feel "old," and you DEFINITELY don't want THAT before you've even hit double digits!!!

Anyway, I'll keep listening (I can't WAIT to hear the interview with Señor Barnes), but mix it up a bit, brutha'! Mix it up!!!

Well, we despots always start out referring to ourselves with some kind of innocuous sounding term to endear us to the people. Of course the eventual goal is complete and utter world domination. As such, I've decided to start dressing the part.



Keep up the good work, Weeks and we may have a job for you at the Ministry of Propaganda.

He's not kidding. We have to stop games for minutes at a time while he re-affixes the medals to his sash. He keeps talking about some "manifesto" he's working on too, very disturbing.

Is it just me or is the RSS feed version truncated at about the 24 min mark (right before the interview starts)?

Good podcast, again. My constructive criticism is let your interviewee finish their thoughts or ramble a bit before hitting them with a new question or saying your own stuff.
