Board Games with Panda is board game podcast where we talk about the games that we love and the community around them.

We have a rotating schedule. Every other week, we release an episode highlighting the games we've been playing and give our quick thoughts on them. We then go over a topic that we find interesting in the hobby.

On the opposite weeks of those episodes, we release our review episodes where we dive a bit deeper into a single game and give a breakdown on what we think of the Components, Rules, Art, and Mechanisms.
