Favourite Podcast!

So I discovered this podcast late 2020 (dundundunnnn). I did no research at all and just searched “video game podcast” not expecting to find on my first click a FEMALE GAMER PODCAST!! I was not prepared. The opening music gets me PUMPED, I have yet to disagree with their opinions on the games they review and honestly? They are all so funny. Thank you ladies for making my commutes to work so enjoyable! 😊
