This is the feed where you can get all the great podcasts found over at the Boards & Swords website (http://boardsandswords.com). There's the main Boards & Swords podcast, where four friends have fun talking about board games and finding a game they all like, and The Dirtbags of Holding, a RPG actual play podcast showing off the wrong way to play several different roleplaying games.
 
Bad jokes. Good folks. Games. Every other week, Chris & Philip talk about their experiences playing different games (both board games and video games). If you enjoy hearing people talk about the fun they have playing various games instead of why X game is better than Y game, this is the show for you. Plus, they've got the latest board games news , the worst jokes, and the best guests occasionally.
 
Obsessive Comics Disorder stars Chris and his best friend Philip - two crazy geeks that have done everything from going to comic book conventions to hosting Nerf gun wars in their front yards. Each week, they sit down and joke about all the geeky things that they are into - from Comics to Board Games, Movies, TV, and everything else in between.
 
Host and former dual professional athlete Guy Walker had a career crippled with injuries which forced him to retire from sport at the age of 24. Through The Athlete Diaries, Guy gets to explore and speak to some amazing athletes and professionals about their journeys and challenges in sport and life. From resilience and mindset to mental health and life away from sport. If you're looking for a light hearted chat that packs value you've come to the right place, enjoy!
