Free Play Ep. 36 | LTN: Year One (Free Play Finale)

SHOW NOTES

2018 is almost over and that means so is the first year of Love Thy Nerd.  It’s been a crazy 10 or so months and we’ve seen some amazing things happen.  Our community has grown to over 1,300 people, we’ve done 2 recon trips and our website, podcasts and social media presence are all killing it online!  We were also able to use our new show model to continue to develop relationships with our friends, new and old, in the gaming industry.

God is truly blessing what we are doing and we are glad that, if even only by listening to this podcast, you are a part of how we are changing gaming culture.

Love Thy Nerd: Year One was great, and that’s what we want to talk about this week on the season one finale of the Free Play Podcast.

 

Note from Aug. 2022: I have no idea where 32 through 35 went. Or if they even existed. Starting to fear a conspiracy.
