Mark is the grand-daddy of the boardgame podcast genre (he would insist a couple other shows beat him out of the gate). His show is the progenitor of countless others in the past decade. And yet, his show is still the best. I discovered BGTG when I was new to the hobby, and now, years later, I'm not sure whether I gravitated toward this show because it matched my own tastes, or whether instead Mark's interests were what shaped my own tastes. Chicken-or-egg perhaps. Of the hordes of imitators that are out there now, Boardgames to Go remains my only must-listen upon each episode release.
