I am a huge fan of boardgames. My ideal evening involves hanging out with close friends, having some snacks, wine, good conversation, and playing boardgames. Most people I admit to this, look at me like I have been stunted at age 10. (Which actually may be true) They hear boardgames and they think the standards, Monopoly, Trivia Pursuit, Life... All of which i personally hate, by the way. Monopoly- the game in which you end up despising your friends and family, the deal making game. Trivia Pursuit- Pop Quiz asshole! What you don't remember some history tidbit from Bystantine Period? The game designed to make you feel stupid. Life- See what job you should have had? Come on? You don't have 8 children and an aspiring career as a hedge fund manager? FAILURE.
Games are no longer what you pull out at awkard family ggatherings to pass the time away. They are events, social communication connections, brain builders, creative outlets. I wanted to feature different games on this podcast to show off not only that there are new games out there for everyone, but also that our city has people developing games that are inspriing, creative, and fun. I wanted to showcase those people, in the hopes that you yourself will check out their games, and buy one, play one, and also find your love of games bloom. There is something for everyone out there.
My first feature is game designer Stentor Danielson. Besides having the coolest name ever, he creates games, and also draws maps that resemble Middle Earth, but in local settings. Ever seen the one he did of Pittsburgh? Yeah, that was him, as if I didn't have reason enough to want to talk to him, he throws in these gorgeous maps. He does custom work, and other places around the world. We will chat about how he got into making them and about his game Money, Bunny, Gunny, which I played last time we got to hang out. Easy to play and fun to boot. Hope you enjoy! Support local people! Also, sorry about recording as podcast #17!

Mike is one of my favorite bartenders in Pittsburgh. I proposed to him to do a series of podcasts featuring his advice on making craft cocktails, and vintage cocktails that people at home can learn from. He gives great advice on techniques, tips and tricks that will for sure step up your entertaining game. This is the longest podcast I have recorded even after editing, just because we had a ton to chat about, and had a blast talking. We will be doing a series of these, so stay tuned for the next podcast with him, which will be featuring holiday cocktails. I enjoyed it so much, and I hope you do too! You can find Mike and his awesome bartender skills at Butcher in the Rye, or Meat and Potatoes. I highly suggest you give him a visit.
