Great cast! One unfortunate problem

I've listened to many a Start Cast over this year, and enjoy it quite a lot. Always love supporting the Aussie side of game journalists, and read the website quite often.

Have one unfortunate niggle - I can't keep listening to the cast as it gives me a headache. I think there's an issue in the audio with Mehdi's microphone or something, not sure if it's just on iTunes or not, but there's this weird glitchy tick like thing that makes listening to this with headphones just impossible for me. Maybe it's just my head, I dunno. Anyway, it's a great cast and if that kind of thing doesn't phase you then this is a definite listen! Unfortunately for myself I need to hold off for a while at least.

Great Gaming Content

The crew provide listeners with an Aussie take on upcoming video games for all platforms. The opinions are varied but provide constructive conversation about the various topics of the week. It’s always great to hear Australians talk about video games and showing their passion for what they do. Keep up the great work and I’m always looking forward to each and every new episode.
