BGTG 53a - Mar 6, 2006 - All About La Città (with Jonathan Degann, part 1)

Finally! Another All About show, which are the sort that everyone seems to love best. This one was recorded with Jonathan Degann, who you may know from his opinions on mailing lists, his Game Theory 101 articles on The Games Journal, or most recently his own blog. Jonathan is someone I played with regularly for some time, when I was with the Left Coast Gamers. Then a few years ago I helped get the Santa Clarita Boardgamers going in my own town, though I still see Jonathan at SoCal Games Days and some other opportunities.

As I've done in the past, the show was long and interesting enough to split it into two parts. The first is talking with Jonathan about his background in the hobby and those writings of his. Then in the second part we get into the actual game discussion.

By the way, have you noticed my voice all over some other boardgame podcasts? I'm becoming an audio spammer! No, I just got in the swing of recording a response or question after listening to a podcast. I didn't think they'd all use them at once! :)

If I use Opera 8.5 as my RSS Reader it never shows the URL for your MP3 files (unlike most other podcasts I listen to)...

Hi Mark -

congratulations on your one year anniversary show! I just finished listening to BGTG #53a on my commute and cannot wait to get to work tomorrow morning for #54b.

Thank you so much for the show, I really enjoy it. I have not yet managed to fully get up to speed on the older shows. Although I am really trying hard. It's just a lot of material. You can be very proud!

Consider this selfish, but I am hoping to write a similar message next year ;)
