VecTron 5 ,

The highlight of my week.

A damn fine podcast. The chemistry between the hosts are fantastic. Plenty of laughs. Really useful for keeping up with gaming culture.

AureyC ,

Ironic

Three unemployed and uneducated straight white men complain about capitalism and representation in the video games industry.

GaiusBaltarlovemachine ,

Great podcast for the inquisitive

Jim Sterling, Laura Kate Dale, and Gavin’s Dunne offer a refreshing and well developed perspective to the video game industry. The three are different enough from each other to really give different views, but have enough in common so as to provide a unified fundamental message of what the show wants to be.
It’s nice to listen to a video game podcast with a group of people like this one. If you’re tired of the same old types of gamers giving the same old tired types of feedback on games, then this podcast is ideal for you.
Highly recommended!!!
