This episode is a little bit different, we'll call it "podeutainment", where I teach a guest (and you) all about the mysteries of Podcasting; or at least as good as I know at this point. Andrew Birkett of Atheris Games has been a long time supporter of The Cardboard Herald. Recently, though, he's been making a big impression in board game media through his own coverage, which can be seen in outlets including Casual Game Insider. Well Andrew is embarking on his own podcasting adventure "Games To Glory" with Cody Thompson of Gold Nugget Games, but first he needs to learn how to podcast! Also lookout for upcoming episodes with Andrew and Cody guest hosting TCbH!
