Note from 2016: Both of these podcasts are dead now. Point 2 Point did, in fact, visit Historicon one year, and interviewed your humble narrator.
There’s some new podcasts in town, and both of them are very good. First of all is Point 2 Point. Jason and Scott discuss WARGAMES (hurrah, finally!) and military strategy games in their new ‘cast. Episode one sets the boundries of what the podcast will be about by actually defining what wargames are and what they are not, delving into the components of a true wargame, and differentiating between gamer types. They are also located in Northern Virginia. I’d like to get them up to COLD WARS to do a live broadcast if possible.
