The Nerd Fountain

Nerd Fountain is not a first look-driven outlet, instead we are a podcast and blog that reviews and interviews designers, developers, and publishers from multiple industries to deliver both an inside perspective and a human touch from behind the closed doors that drive nerd culture. We also discuss mid-life dating, give advice, and answer emails. Shows range from The Nerd Fountain's main feed, which features specific discussion points, paired usually with a tabletop or video game review, followed by casual conversation. Other shows include Interviews and shows from the road between Jeffrey Norman Bourbeau and other collaborators.

Hello my good buddies,

This podcast features a recorded panel from Metatopia 2016. 

On this panel we feature a large amount of Q+A with the audience while also discussing our personal failures and issues arising from kickstarter, customer service, shipping, manufacturing, and many other problems we experienced while working in the tabletop industry.

We also list off some great resources for new designers and publishers to check out with tons of great advice, in addition to what we provide during the panel. 

The panel's official description:

"How to Learn From Mistakes and Delays: Don't Let Your Failed Kickstarter End Your Career" presented by Jeffrey Bourbeau, Mark Sierens, Matt Fantastic. This panel will focus on how to learn from failures and delays in the board game industry. We will highlight how one should not let a failed Kickstarter be the end of your career, and discuss some of the many other issues that arise from delays in both production and shipping that should be accounted for when producing a game, which can lead to customer and client disappointment."
