Hello Odyssey Family,
We want to introduce another SUPER AWESOME TEAM MEMBER: Evan Bridges! Evan returns to us and is a familiar face to many because he was on staff with Game Empire. Evan is one of our board game experts. Let’s meet Evan!

Int: where did you go to school?
E: I have a bachelor’s degree in Science in Radio, TV, Film, from The University of Texas at Austin.
Interviewer: why is your nickname “the Board Game Whisperer?”
