I am proud to say that we have been a part of the digital magazine 28 since its foundation, working alongside the rest of the 28 team and all of the talented contributors. Putting out each issue is a lot of work, from collecting submissions, to editing, to doing the graphic design. As a result, since its foundation in 2018, we have released three volumes (with a fourth in its final stages, as I type this). This slow release schedule got the team talking about the possibility of starting a podcast. This would allow the team to release more regular content, giving us the opportunity to share what we are currently excited about in our own hobby journeys. After a little more discussion, we quickly recorded our first episode, focusing on the miniature game Forbidden Psalm, set in the MÖRK BORG universe. Although we are still working out the format for the episodes, including who hosts each and what we talk about, Alexander Winberg (Creative Director of 28) and I hosted the first episode.
Paralleling the magazine's name, the podcast is named 32, after the scale that is increasingly being favored by miniature companies like Games Workshop (thanks Wilhelminiatures for the suggestion). You can listen to the first episode on 28’s website, or wherever you listen to podcasts (Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, etc). Although it is still early days for the podcast, any thoughts or suggestions are welcome!
