Tabletop Genesis

Welcome to Tabletop Genesis, where you will know what it means to be a lamb lying down beyond the silver rainbow while Duke dances on a volcano.

Join your hosts Simon Godfrey, Stacy Godfrey, Mike Lord, Eli Noetinger, and Tom Roche as they wax poetic on everything Genesis - from the songs to the tours to the evolution of Mike Rutherford's facial hair.
