Quality podcast

Interesting guests, good questions, and the guests are given room to talk. Doesn’t get much better than this.

Excellent in-depth discussions about game design

A really fantastic podcast about game design, game history and culture through in-depth interviews with influential figures. Having listened to almost all episodes I much prefer Soren’s interviews to Adam’s but all are interesting. Some of my favorites: Amy Hennig, Sid Meier, George Fan. These are really fascinating and worth a listen.

Intelligent and entertaining

Great podcast, in part due to the fascinating world of game development and in part due to the host being deeply into it enough to know where to go with the interview.
