Boards Alive is a podcast where we talk about tabletop games. Our goal is to show that tabletop gaming can be just as exciting and engaging as Hollywood movies or big budget video games. We try to highlight games that have a rich theme that connects with the mechanics of the game. We want to help people escape into tabletop games and enjoy the competition and camaraderie of gaming.
 
A Dungeon World actual play podcast where players from the Chimaera roleplaying society rotate gamemaster duties around the table. We explore a shared, emergent mythical world and create stories of savage swords & strange sorceries. Our main series can be enjoyed in any order anthology-style, with threads and occasional characters loosely connecting them together. Sometimes we play other roleplaying games. 🎲7-9 4 Life🎲

Each episode features host Noel Rappin talking to interesting people in the tech community about building something the right way. We’re not just going to give you our thoughts on the topic, but tools, processes, or references that you can use immediately to build better software and communities.
