Episode 74 – Coiled Prison

Jamie’s away so Iain gets Oliver from Tabletop Games Blog in the studio for a tryout. Jamie’s surprise return puts things on a rather awkward note but together they come together to report on this week’s news. From distributors getting themselves tied in knots, Kickstarters getting cancelled and convention season looking a bit wobbly, no news corner is too dark for the Brainwaves team to stick their snout in.
