Episode 100 - Centenary Special

It’s the 100th Episode! In a very special live show Iain and Jamie welcome back Sam who has been hiding in the walls/ another dimension. They are joined by the interview legend that is Richard Simpson from We’re Not Wizards. Together they dive into the  murky waters of the latest tabletop news including the Jamison Stone controversy, Cake IP issues, dodgy funding, worth causes, and much more. When the news is all dealt with Richard takes over to interview the original Brainwaves team and ask questions on behalf of our audience.
