I used to listen to a lot of podcasts, but with not being in the car as much; I don’t have the time any more. There are two podcasts that I would like to bring to your attention, one I was part of recently and one that I might know one of the hosts.
Tartan Skirmish Radio, hosted by David of Coin and Carnage blog; is thankfully still going. David has decided to bring in guests each month, who will help him host the show. This month he has Kenzie, a fellow Malifaux player. Their second episode can be downloaded from the Tartan Skirmish site, or from iTunes.
The other podcast is of course, Boosted Damage. Having recently painted a model for Jon Webb, it was nice to hear that the show has reached its 100th episode. With lots of guests dropping by, it is a cracking episode to celebrate one of the UK’s best WM/H podcasts.
So if you’ve never listened to a podcast, or just want something new to try; check out these two. You won’t be disappointed.
About a month ago, I mentioned this podcast; which I am working on with David. Well through various delays and complications, we have finally got the first episode out there. This was recorded about a month ago, hence why there is some parts that appear out of date. That said, we hope you enjoy it, feel free to leave feedback and comments. If there is anyone looking to promote an event or particular game; contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org or at email@example.com
Tartan Skirmish Radio
Despite this not being directly related to Warmachine/Hordes, this episode does guest star yours truly. Along with David (Coin and Carnage), were invited along to discuss the gaming in the area and Scotland wide.
We also got the chance to investigate a mysterious box, with some hilarity and broken microphones. So hope you enjoy.
The Ancible Podcast
From my days as part of Shotgun or Grapple, I know how hard it is to take that first step into podcasting. Your worried about how you will sound, you generally ramble or wing it; with lots of pauses oomm’s and errmss.
So I am showing support for a new UK Warmachine/Hordes podcast called Alpha Strike. A fledgling group of podcasters, which I wish all the success possible for their venture. Having already listened to the first show, they have a great group; which has that friendly banter dynamic that works well in podcasting. While the first show is just about the European Team Championships, it has a great insight and information into the tournament, how it works and of course how well they did.
My only critique, would be the length of the episode. Though this is something that we (Shotgun or Grapple) fell foul of in our first episode as well, running to 2 hours in length. This is minor, as the more episodes they do; the more they will become less nervous and more focused on what they want to say.
Anyway, enough rambling from me, enjoy the UK’s latest WM/H podcast – Alpha Strike
