Connecting to Host is a co-operative and multiplayer gaming podcast. As friends who now live a thousand miles apart, John and Ben let loose their strong opinions about co-op and online gaming. In a typical episode we review a game from a purely co-op perspective but we often do specials to discuss other gaming news or other topics about the bigger picture of multiplayer gaming.

Informative, witty and entertaining
Connecting to Host is a podcast by a couple of guys who talk about the games they like to play. Which in premise sounds an awful lot like a large chunk of podcasts and YouTube videos out there. What makes this podcast a little different from the rest of the pack is that the two hosts focus almost exclusively on the co-operative play elements of the games that they review.
The game choices on this podcast are nice and varied, with reviews so far of platformers, first person shooters, strategy and driving games. The hosts do a great job of really deep-diving on the features and nuance of the games that they are playing and provide a wonderful balance of informative and entertaining commentry.
The only gripe that I have is that I usually come away from an episode of this podcast with another game on my wishlist!
