A bit of a different post for today, but something that has bothered me for a while and recently come to a head.
Why are there no Podcasts which cover Specialist Games?
Now, I know that a great many hobby podcasts already exist especially for 40k and Fantasy (I regularly listen to Garagehammer, the Independent Characters, and Jaded Gamercast), and that these very very occasionally have one off episodes covering a particular specialist game, but there is no sustained engagement with Specialist Gaming.
I also know that there are a number of Bloodbowl specific podcasts – which kind of suggests that there would no problem content or audience wise for a podcast focused on Specialist Gaming. Given the fact that GW no longer support our form of hobbying, it seems to me that the communities that we do have become ever more important and I think a podcast would help to bind together the communities that have formed around each game, while also bringing together those disparate communities to allow for the interchange of ideas and inspiration.
Given all this, and the wealth of stuff that the podcast could cover (fluff, proxy models reviews, batreps, campaigns, new rules development, tactics, scenarios, terrain and modelling, expansion books) over so many games (BFG, EPIC, Necromunda, Warmaster, Inquisitor, Mordheim, Gorkamorka, Aeronautica etc), setting up a Specialist Games podcast of some kind is something I want to give alot of thought over the next couple of weeks.
In that vein I would love any input that any blog readers might have on this, and any suggestions!
