Hey everyone. A few of us have started a podcast for Arkham Horror LCG as we anxiously await its release. Here's our first episode! Enjoy!

iTunes ?

 

Speaking from experience it can be challenging at times to come up with topics for a game that does not exist yet. With Adeptus Podcastus we were lucky and they did a faction preview each week that we covered plus we got previews from FFG for the same factions.

I hear what you are saying Toqtamish but I have faith in these guys.  Ian and Sean aren't new to podcasting about LCGs.  I am sure that they can figure out something besides the release spoilers to discuss. I can see them easily filling time until the game's release considering FFG already has tons of lore built up for the setting in the form of their current Arkham Horror board game and it's spiritual successor Eldritch Horror.  All our investigators I believe are already represented in that game.  Also discussing the actual Lovecraft source material can give them plenty of meat.  For example Ian's Grey Company podcast for LOTR LCG does a chapter by chapter reread of LOTR and talks about how that relates to cards already in the game and cards they'd like to see.  That has been a wealth of content for them when news is slow.

Right I never said otherwise. Just gave a suggestion from my own experience. I was considering doing a podcast for this game too but not sure how much content a co-op game will generate. All my previous shows have been competitive focused.

You mentioned it would be challenging. I didn't mean to imply more than that.  I was just cheering the guys on.  I love COTR and The Grey Company.

Yeah, I thought about doing a podcast too but without the actual game figured I had nothing to talk about.  Then again, my emphasis has always been more "nuts & bolts" (strategy, how to play, etc...) compared to many gaming podcasts.  I'm having a heck of a time finding good X-Wing podcasts because most of them are 2 hours episodes that are 80% of listening to some guys chatting with light interspersed game information.  Radio TCX is really the only "meaty" one I've found so far and I've run out of episodes with that one.

 

The other thing is I wanted to wait in order to see how much I actually like it.  Didn't want to make a commitment and then turn out that I wasn't as much into the game as I'd expected.

Back to Dials used to be great but has turned in to another Nova Squadron with it's ridiculous length. Nova Squadron is garbage but extremely popular for some reason. 186th Squadron is pretty good, they are in the UK. I love Radio TCX since it is on topic, professional and short enough to listen to during a lunch break. I even joined their Patreon campaign.

I don't play LotR so no real experience with it's podcasts other than I did listen to a few different episodes a couple weeks ago in trying to figure out what you do on a co-op game based podcast for topics. One was massively off topic most of the time. 

 

I mentioned it would be challenging to come up with topics before the games launch only. Afterwards of course it would be fine It would also help if there was preview articles but still probably early yet for that. But soon I would think with launch being about two months away now.

Certainly a challenge, no question about that. We do have some ideas of how to fill in the space 'til release.  :)

Yeah, I'm thinking of joining their campaign as well.  First, I need to figure out how you access the extra content though.  Do you happen to know?  Normally I listen using Downcast on my iPhone.  If I need to do something different to get their bonus content that's sort of hit to convenience as all my listening is during walking or driving, not at the computer.

"40 minutes in and they haven't even mentioned Batman". I pretty much died here. It shouldn't have been as funny as I found it. 

 

Enjoyed the episode, and even more pumped that not 5 minutes after finishing listening the new article went live on FFG

Nice!

 

As an AV nerd, my first question is: what do you use to record?

Nothing fancy. We each record our audio with Audacity and then smash the tracks together. I think Tom used Adobe Audition to do the mixing.

Cardboard of the Rings does a nice job with it. Maybe borrow stuff from them?

Finally finished listening to the first episode.  Right now it's obviously pretty light on actual content, not the podcast's fault since we don't have a lot of details yet.  I'm looking forward to hearing what it will be like after the actual launch when we've got a lot more to discuss.

You and I might represent the spectrum of podcast listeners. I don't mind some light chat. When a podcast starts listing out fact after fact about a card (which I've done myself) it can be tough to listen to or follow. But some people find the fluff to be a waste and want more news, facts facts facts. A lot of games have more than one podcast going and the draw (for me at least) is whether I like the personalities. Variety is the spice of life!

 

Is Elder Things going to rise from the grave? I liked those guys.

Yeah, I'm definitely on the "crunch" side of listenership :)  I mostly want a podcast to teach me something, or give me some new ideas, report on recent events/meta stuff, analyze new cards/releases, explain a concept for me, things like that.  Some chatting is fine and there's definitely room for personalities, but if there's more chatting then there is game discussion I'll probably look for alternatives.

 

As for Elder Things...  Currently planning to wait until the game actually releases and I can try it out.

I'm with HappyDD.  I don't listen to podcasts to just get hard facts.  That sounds too dry for me.  Also I can read the strategy articles and news articles much faster than a podcast can be released.  I listen to podcasts about card games to hear a candid (possibly entertaining) conversation about the games I love.

And I'm with dboeren. Some chatter is fine but when it goes massively off topic and or becomes a swear fest I switch off and delete it from my feed. There is room for many tastes with podcasts as with all things.
