2020 has been quite the year. From lockdowns to face masks, lots of new things have made their way into our lives. There is a glimmer of hope, a rose within the thorns... a rose Bush I should say. Bush's Board Game Thing is a brand new podcast powered by Zatu.
Talking all things board games, Absolute Radio's Andy Bush will be celebrating the experience of gaming. Andy will be joined each week by friends Jess Temby and Brian Murphy. Produced by The Bugle, Bush's Board Game Thing will deliver passion, enthusiasm and multiple trips through various gaming wormholes. You can check out the trailer here.
Each week, the trio will come together to talk about board games based around a wide range of themes. From scary movies to video games, there will be a new topic that will spark a list of suggestions and hilarious stories each week. Board games have the magical quality of bringing people together. To get people to put down their phones for a few hours.
