The NINTH EVER Shut Up & Sit Down podcast has arrived! Like a beautiful steam train, it's impressive, quite long and harnesses only rudimentary technology.

Several days after recording it, we've arbitrarily decided that this one has the theme of reigning! We've got detailed impressions of new, absurdly tricky card game Reignaissance Man, we discuss the problem with ruling imaginary nations, and we discuss the games we'd banish from our kingdoms if we could. We're so classy that we've even managed to coax the fabulous Leigh Alexander back as a special guest! It's as if she never left.

Please, head on over to our shiny podcast section to commence your hour of enjoyment. Or just skip to 44:36 to laugh at Paul getting angrier than we've ever heard him before.
