The Clockwork Game Design Podcast

The Clockwork Game Design Podcast is a game design podcast hosted by me. Some episodes are a bunch of talking and thinking about a specific issue in game design. Some episodes are longer form interviews with some of the smartest people working in the field. Most episodes also address listener comments and questions, and other stuff.
