Episode 46 – Essen 2012, Day One!

The immense Spiel event takes place every year in October in the German city of Essen and sees the release of hundreds of new board and card games (as well as so  much more). The Little Metal Dog Show was in attendance for the second year running as the fair celebrated its thirtieth anniversary. Bigger than ever, the halls were filled with booths featuring games from around the world, and this first episode of four will take you straight to the show floor. In this one you’ll find interviews with the following people and companies…

    Michael, I love the show and I really want to listen to this episode, but it’s broken by the pre-roll advertisement.

    When my podcatcher downloads it, it shows the wrong duration and crashes about 15 minutes in. When I use the direct download link above all I get is the ad.

    Could you fix this please?
    Thanks for all the hard work you do.

      Looks like my hosting service set up an advertising service without consulting me. Anyway, thanks for letting me know about it – I didn’t even realise they’d added it! I’ve now marked the show as opting out of the feed, so hopefully it’ll be ad free (aside from anything I actually mention) within 24 hours.

      Cheers for listening!
