BGG Con is only a few weeks away and I'm very excited to attend. I'm not a huge con attendee -- it's not quite my scene. I found the chaos of Gen Con frustrating and dissatisfying, but BGG is just a blast.
I'm a big fan of Slate's The Gist, a daily ~30 minute podcast that features Mike Pesca, formerly of NPR. I highly recommend it if you enjoy witty wordplay, commentary of culture and politics, interesting interviews, and most importantly, Mike Pesca.
