Best gaming podcast around

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.
