About The Broken Meeple

Hello everyone! Luke Hector here!

Currently I run a blog and podcast called the Broken Meeple! You may have heard of it, if not, I don't blame you, but I've been on the go for over 7 years now and am a proud member of the Dice Tower Network and attend a wide variety of conventions in the UK as well as Essen in Germany. Sadly my location doesn't allow me to easily get to one of the big American conventions or Dice Tower East, but who knows maybe a goal for the future? 

I prepare a range of content for the channel now. I resurrected my YouTube channel for Season 2 and thanks to meeting the first goal of the Patreon campaign, I was able to upgrade my video editing software to Adobe Creative Cloud so that I could transgress into Season 3 with some "hopefully" improved video work. That season started in January 2019 and it's evolving every episode. I'm now just starting Season 5 with a brand new refreshed look and the channel is constantly trying to improve with the introduction of live streaming.

On top of this I run a solo podcast which you can find on SoundCloud, Apple and Spotify or check my YouTube channel where I post the deluxe video versions. Those you can also find on the official Broken Meeple blog hub at 

Of course doing this solo not only requires a heavy investment in time, but also a heavy investment in cost.

If you would like to see me expand my video content, please be so kind as to pledge what you can to enable me to improve on the quality in the future with the help of you amazing people. All feedback is graciously received with ideas and suggestions for developing The Broken Meeple. 

Take care, remember it's only a game and once again, thank you all for reading, listening and watching!! I value each and every one of you and this channel wouldn't be here without you!

My Rode Podcaster mic is good, but there are better ones on the market. I would much prefer to have a wireless microphone of high quality that can just clip on to my shirt. On top of that, there are many accessories that can be bought to improve podcast quality.
