One of the best podcasts out

I have been listening to these lovely ladies for over a year now and I still haven’t left a review. I’m sorry girls. I’m a bit slack. First of all pineapple DOES go on pizza.
Anyone that leaves a bad review for these girls have rocks in their head. This show is everything you want. 3 awesome chicks talking gaming and having a great time. They have been in the industry for a long time and even worked at some beloved companies in the industry. They have very informative news and reviews and constantly make me laugh. I don’t feel like I’m listening to a podcast, I feel like I’m hanging out with friends. Great great great show. Have recommended this show to a bunch of friends.

These guys are pretty good

I like Steimer the most but everyone is great

Evil_ss ,

An absolute banger!!

I have listened to the show for quite some time, and realised I haven’t left a review. Firstly, pineapple does NOT belong on a pizza. Lastly, keep up the terrific news and banter to new this Aussie pissing his pants.
