Yarkshire Gamer Podcast 53 - Phil Andrews and Martin Gane - Salute 51


Welcome to Episode 53, for the first time on the Podcast we are going to have a detailed look at a Wargames Show in the UK and we have started with the biggest.

You can download the episode on the link below or from any major Podcast Host

Salute is a London based show which has been around since the 1970s, it has grown and grown through a series of venues to its current location in the Excel centre and it sees around 6,000 devotees of the Wargaming Hobby descending on it each year.

My guests are Phil Andrews who is the current lead organiser of the show and Martin Gane who is the President of the South London Warlords, the club that runs the show.

As usual we get to know our guests through the Introduction, Big Game Chat and Features section before getting into the Big Topic which of course is the Salute Show.

Full details, including tickets etc on Salute can be found at the following location,

Hope you enjoy the episode and I will be back next month with another guest and another show.

Until then, Sithee

Yarkshire Gamer Podcast - Episode 52 Giles Shapley - Shed Wars

Welcome to the first Podcast of 2024, it always seems to take me a while to get started again in the New Year, but at least I managed to get an episode out i January this time around.

Today my guest is the author of the blog Shed Wars, Giles Shapley who is also known by his nom de plume "Eric the Shed".

The episode is available on the link below or via all the major Podcast hosts just search for Yarkshire Gamer

Shed Wars was and remains one of the staple Wargaming Blogs and it continues to be regularly updated (unlike some, yes I mean you Yarkshire Gamer !) with the gaming adventures of Giles and his friends.

In recent months the Shed has relocated to a more rural location outside the M25 and Giles has converted on of the buildings on the land he bought into a new improved version of the Shed. Plans are afoot to get on site accommodation so you can stay and play.

All the usual features are here, so sit back and enjoy nearly three hours of Wargames Chat.

The Shed Wars Blog is here
