Queer folk talking about gaming - what’s not to love?!

Seriously, it’s nice as a queer person to hear other queer people talk about one of my greatest loves - gaming. I tune in every week and it’s my favourite gaming podcast due to the panel being made up of queer gamers, that it’s made in my home town of melbourne and of course because it's fun to listen to gaming news from overseas especially from Aus.

JAM PACKED WITH CONTENT

An incridbley polished and professional gaming podcast. The team are fun and they have such differing views without being jerks to each other. With three podcasts a week I don't know where they find the time.

A Much Needed Breath of Fresh Air

I'm only two episodes in and I'm already in love with this podcast! The Checkpoint team clearly know what they're talking about without coming across as condescending, and what with the recent onslaught of anti-LGBT sentiment bc of the marriage equality debate, this is a great podcast that blends gaming and LGBT community seamlessly. This podcast is a lighthearted and safe space to catch up on gaming news and discussions.
