The dynamic duo of board game podcasters!

I simply cannot live without Board Games Insider. Both Ignocy and Stephan are very passionate about their businesses and bring such an unbridled enthusiasm to the show. They report on current industry news with a business commentary slant. I’m always interested in their point of views on hot topics. They openly talk about how their businesses run and the challenges they struggle with. Both are an invaluable resource for those looking to get an inside peak into the business side of gaming. I rank Ignocy and Stephan right up there with some of the greatest dynamic duos in history... Danny DeVitto & Arnold Schwarzenegger Frodo & Sam Bill & Ted Tango & Cash Riggs and Murtaugh (Stephan is definitely Riggs...) Burt & Ernie Batman & Robin Lavern & Shirley Keep it up guys!

My favorite gaming podcast
