Battlechat headerI create regular podcasts, mostly in the form of interviews with wargaming personalities and businesses. These are normally released exclusively to my Patreon patrons for several days, before being made available to everyone.

This list does not include the Q&A sessions or short Off the Cuff podcasts which are exclusive to patrons.

All the podcasts listed here are available to listen for free and this list will be added to as and when new episodes become available. Note that patrons have access to these podcasts 14 days before everyone else, so if you want to have early access, just sign up using the button on this page for as little as $2.50 a month.

As of January 2020, I also started to gradually upload the back catalogue to YouTube. It will take me a long time to catch up completely, but I know some people prefer to use YouTube as their media channel of choice. Become a Patron
