What people have said

Mostly nice things, I'm happy to say.
"You have a great face for radio!" [gee, thanks, Phil!]
"A welcome change to the current crop of podcasts..." 
"His sound quality is really nice and he offers some cool perspective on context in miniature gaming." 
"Really good to hear another historical wargaming podcast." 
"You have a distinct point of view which is worth hearing."
"I really enjoyed the episode and, given Mike’s general focus on historical gaming, I think it’s not unlikely that The Miller’s Tale could become my favourite wargames podcast." 


  1. Hi, Mike,

    I'm a subscriber. On my way down to deepest Cornwall for work tomorrow, so I'll have a listen then.

    Good luck with this new venture


  2. Excellent! Downloading now. So glad to find another wargaming podcast :)

  3. I suscribed through iTunes and listen this Staurday morning while painting at home. Excellent first instalment, keep them coming Mike

  4. Enjoyed the first episode. Any plans for more?

  5. Just downloaded all the podcasts.
    Well done Mike.
    Totally agree with your comments about teaching history to teenagers. I hated it at school, but subsequently engaged in Living History from 1640 to 1815.
    I am also a "narrative gamer", an amateur 3d printer and a watcher of the Model Railway challenge, I enjoy making terrain that looks good, within my Kallistra hexagon based terrain concept, so each hex tile is an integrated model.

    Keep up the good work!

  6. Dear G-d please. Please tune down the bumper music so it is not as loud as your speech.

    Great podcast, I really enjoy listening to the podcast, but the sudden loud music is really offsetting.

    1. I did notice after the last one. Actually it's not that the music is too loud, it's getting enough level from the mic: will be looking into it for the next episode.

  7. Episode 6. Well done Mike. Particularly your stuff about how to interact with the visitor.
