Beanus Wannabe ,

My Favourite and longest listened podcast.

Scott Johnson is the epitome of what a great podcast host is. I feel like I know him during every episode. The Instance has become a weekly listen since 2009. Anything Frogpants does is stellar.

Disappointed.

Came back after a few years to listen to 20 mins of people piping on about safe spaces and blaming a company for something definitely outside of a companies control. I thought this was about video games not politics.

JamCart ,

Still awesome after all these years

"2 Thumbs up and a big Grin"
This is a quality production. Informative and endlessly entertaining! A yard stick for podcasts.
Even though I have played video games in the past 2 years, I still enjoy listening to the team.
