The Board - Juan on One with Idea23 [57:45]

TheBoard - Mechanical Keyboard Talk by Mechanical Keyboard Enthusiasts

This series is all about Mechanical Keyboards, talking from switches, caps, DIY kits, hand-wired, cases, plates and more. If its about Mechanical Keyboards, we'll probably talk about it! As a sub-series is also the Mech Market Report, a weekly look at prices from the second-hand market on the MechMarket subreddit.

TheBoard - Mechanical Keyboard Talk by Mechanical Keyboard Enthusiasts

Its been a while, but we're joined again by Juan/Busgamer from Idea23.   We chat about whats happened lately and where Idea23 is looking to head going forwards. Its a pretty solid chat and if you have any questions for Juan on anything relating to Idea23, hit him up on Reddit/Patreon, or let us know and I'll be more than happy to pass it on. ***   Our Instagram is at https://www.instagram.com/theboardpodcast    You can also catch us on Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/theboardpodcast) and if you'd like to shout us some coffee, you can do so now at https://buymeacoff.ee/p3ON0kuAz So, until next time, Happy Clacking :)

Due to very challenging volume differences in speaking I apologise for the volume changes and noise background that you may experience.
