A far cry from the shows origins

By grokit85 - Apr 27 2020

I like what TC brings, but please lay off the political banter. I haven't listened to the show for awhile and thought I'd check out the Commands and Colors: Ancients episode. I've been considering getting a C&C game, and have been interested in the wargaming aspect of the hobby. But in this episode, everyone but the guest host seemed a little clueless. Why "review" a game, (if you can call what I listened to a review,) if you don't know a lot about the game? The episode continued to be counterintuative as one of the hosts kept bashing wargamers while reviewing a wargame. He gave off a very elitest demenor, when I think that's what he was accusing wargamers of being.

Flawed but Good

Love the concept of this podcast. Doing a deep dive on one game is sort of like the best use of the podcast medium. However, the conversation often feels like dueling monologues. The hosts should look into ways they could smooth out their banter to feel more like give-and-take.
