Podcasts – Wargaming Recon

Jonathan returns from his time spent away from the show as he began to mourn the passing of his grandmother.  This episode features Jonathan sharing the story of his grandparents and how their lives not only shaped him, but also shaped the culture of Wargaming Recon.

The second half of the episode is filled with Jonathan discussing the ways in which building with Dwarven Forge terrain has therapeutically helped him to grieve.  He also chats about using Dwarven Forge terrain to game with his two children ages 5 1/2 and 18 months.

This episode sits firmly among the umbrella of 2020 being our year of mental health at the podcast.  It was recorded in the car on Jonathan’s way home from visiting his grandparents’ grave.  If you, or someone you know, is mourning a loved one please consider looking at Harvard Medical School’s “Ways to support someone who is grieving” or reach out to a friend or therapist (you can find trained therapists, counselors, psychiatrists, and support groups through Psychology Today’s website).  You don’t have to mourn alone.
