Behind the Shield – Episode 71.1 – “A Podcast Divided”

 

There is more going on at Battleground this week than can be contained in a single podcast so we’re splitting this week’s episode in two. In this first part we cover all the “what’s going on at Battleground” stuff you would expect in the first half of a normal episode. We also talk briefly about the massive Magic the Gathering infodump we got this week with news about Magic product coming out over the next year.

Behind the Shield – Episode 69 – “Best Laid Plans for 40k”

We had every intention of making this the all 40k 8th edition episode, but things did not work out the way we had them planned.  We do have a short interview from Al and Matt at the Norton location about 40k, and after that Andrew and Amanda talk about not talking about 40k.  Then we talk about why we’re not talking about leaked Magic cards.  Then we talk about new social media available for folks who want to connect with Battleground.
