We continue our annual tradition of bringing board game industry veteran Stephen Buonocore, now retired from Stronghold Games/Indie Game Studios and focusing on media and podcasting. We explore the bizarre, catastrophic year of 2020, and consider what’s in store for us in 2021.
Note that this episode was recorded on Monday, November 30, 2020; we occasionally say “this year” to mean 2020 instead of 2021.
