Best gaming podcast going

I have been listening to the spark for a few years now and it has become my one gaming and pop culture podcast each week. The hosts chat is always funny and has a mates in the pub vibe to it. Highly recommended if like myself you are a gamer of the more middle aged variety.

A great listen

Pull up a chair and take time to listen to this great podcast. Don't be put of by the running time, it's time well spent if you have any interest in gaming and technology. Presenters are funny (with some weird obsession to certain games, no names mentioned #Pinata) and have some great banter, it's like your spending 3 hours sitting with mates talking about a common interest. One word of warning, this podcast will damage your wallet when you start to buy more games after there chats and recommendation 😃 Keep it up guys 👍
