Only podcast I listen to

Love the polygon team, excellent meta-reviews and insight.

nice

I really like Quality Control , especially the layout of the show. It's very quick and light, each episode acts as a kind of post-script for a Polygon Review and I think the host Justin McEllroy does a great job of getting a quick banter going about some of the things that might not be in the review or outside circumstances that could impact the game experience. While it's a suppliment to the website's reviews it's not required to be keeping up with your reading- this podcast serves as a pretty neat little review show

Unique concept executed well

I really like having a podcast that digs into the issues that game reviews tend to touch on; I feel like these sorts of issues will sometimes surface in op ends and panel-style podcasts, but this space gives them a bit of room to breathe, y’know?
