Bantercast. Just listen. Good.

The amount of effort I had to go to to get to a point where I could leave an Apple review for this podcast shows how much I love it.
Been listening since lock down and it's got me through some tough times and lights up my work days going through the back log of old podcasts as well as the new releases every Wednesday.
Absolutely slag off the PSVR2, which is always going to be a niche product without the budget to just throw money at, but this does not diminish my love for the guys. Look forward to hearing views of the PSVR2 when it's still being used for some great PS6 releases.
Please don't be put off by the length of the podcast, it's such a nice easy listen without off putting bull****,so it's great to listen to whilst doing other things.
Deserves awards.
James is the best one.

Elevator lady ,

Sean is the best one

A wonderful trio of lacklustre enthusiastic amateurs dragged along by the podcasting force of nature that is Sean Bell. Come for the Sean Bel - STAY for the, well, Sean Bell. Mark, Dan and Jimmy work as perfect foils for his whit and expertise, while reclining in the reflected glory of Bell’s genius. Very good show.

Excellent

I liked it so much I thought I’d go all the way back to episode 1 and listen to them all, but I quickly abandoned that plan when I realised it was pre-Nintendo Switch. Ain’t nobody got time for that, as they say. But gives a flavour of how much I liked it anyway.
