Welcome to the Round-Up, where we chart one week in the life of CJTR’s podcasts. Is this the best week of podcasts ever? Yes, in the sense that every week of CJTR podcasts is the best week. In all seriousness, though, there’s a wide variety of topics and tangents in this week’s selection, from Amanda G.’s exploration of Regina’s past in Rear-view Mirror to the boisterous dissection of board game etiquette in Of Dice and Men. Give them all a good listen.
