The Board Game Gateway podcast crew are a bunch of friends who all share a love for getting around the table and sharing experiences together. The creation of this podcast is an excuse for us to meet up on a regular basis and discuss what it is about this hobby they love so much, but more than that they want to share this passion with you and give you a place to learn about why you may enjoy it as well.
