Episode 31 (9/21/2014)

"The Hardest Thing I Ever Wrote" Nathan and Eric have finally conducted the big interview for which you have all, perhaps, been waiting. David Hill, the excellent writer who chose to cover Diplomacy on both grantland.com and This American Life. He tells us his story, and takes us behind the scenes! Also, emails.

Episode 30 (7/12/2014)

"Worth the Wait" Perhaps the happenings of the World Diplomacy Championship for 2014, and the mainstream media article that it spawned, are old news to the listener by now, but Eric and Nathan have let these things breathe before deigning to discuss them on the show. What results is a lively enough review of these important things even before we are joined by the inimitable Dan Lester, "winner" of WDC but winner (no quotes) of our hearts. Dan demonstrates, in his understated English way, just why it is that he is so darned good at Diplomacy, and at life.

Episode 29 (5/16/2014)

In this Episode, Nathan and Eric get excited about the upcoming DixieCon, catch you up on Fantasy Diplomacy standings, and then read your mail. But mostly, we are graced with the presence of Christian Pedone, who tells us about his tournament in Philadelphia, his education of that city's youth in the ways of Diplomacy, and his least favorite types of Diplomacy players.

Episode 28 (4/1/2014)

As Nathan and Eric were not fully prepared for the challenge of a full monthly episode, they have instead provided you with a sort of "show of links" that may pique one or more of the listener's assuredly diverse interests unrelated to the game of Diplomacy. Enjoy it anyway!

About DiplomacyCast.com

DiplomacyCast is a podcast devoted to the boardgame Diplomacy, a classic game of strategy and negotiation, where players must create (and occasionally break) alliances with one another in order to succeed.  In the podcast, Eric and Nathan (two longtime Diplomacy journeymen) discuss our (occasionally zany) ideas about strategy; babble incessantly about the strange and fascinating world of tournament Diplomacy; interview the brightest stars of competitive Diplomacy; and most importantly, attempt to reach out to all you Diplomacy lovers out there who can't find six other people to play with!

We are extremely eager to start hearing feedback from you. Drop us a line, tell us what you think, and help us take the podcast in new directions. You can also learn more about the people behind the 'cast...
