Unconventional conversations. We dive into GenCon with a dozen interviews with some industry giants (Richard Garfield, Bruno Cathala), some influential newcomers (TableTop, The Game Whisperer) and some great game publishers.

12 Interviews:  Bruno Cathala, Ragami (Mesa Board Games), Pajaggle, Richard Garfield & Justin Gary (SolForge), TableTop (Boyan Radakovich), Schlock Mercenary (Living Worlds Games), Mice & Mystics (Plaid Hat Games), Morels (Two Lanterns Games), Quartex (CSE Games), Kill the Overlord (APE Games), Richard Bliss (The Game Whisperer), and Sentinels of the Multiverse (Greater Than Games).

Complete Show Notes continue after the break.
