Episode 20 – Home Grown

And here we are, having made it nearly a whole year! Twenty episodes in – grab it from here or from iTunes. Frankly, I’m a little shocked we’ve got this far but I’m (as always) incredibly grateful to everyone involved – which you’ll get to hear yourself at the end of this episode. Another pair of interviews grace number 20 and both represent homegrown talents. First up, Leonard Boyd and David Brashaw – the designers of upcoming Discworld-based board game Guards! Guards! discuss how it came about and believe me, it’s been a long gestation period that had its fair share of problems! Thankfully their story has a happy ending and the game will be released very soon. There’s also chat with John Yianni from Gen 42, the man who brought a little game called Hive out of the workshop and into your collections. As a little aside, all three guys will be at the forthcoming UK Games Expo this June!

Chris is still a busy bee, but get your questions in for the next episode where we’ll be 21 and all grown up. Email show@littlemetaldog.com with your queries, comments and general loveliness – it’s always great to hear from people! Thanks as always for listening, and be sure to keep an eye out on the site and my twitter feed for a special first birthday giveaway… More details on Friday!

PS: Sorry if the sound’s a little squicky on the first interview!
