The podcast looks at the relationship between our computer and console gaming habits and that older social media: the board game.

While those of us who write in the Multimedia section focus a good deal of our time on video games, quite a number of us also have a certain fondness for games of a non-digital sort.

This podcast is also available via iTunes.
