The new continuity ,

Smartest 3 hours of game talk every week and also the stupdist

Genuinely very thoughtful game discussion in a way that isn’t just regurgitating whatever argument people on Twitter are having this week. Smart and funny and occasionally very drunk. I know it’s a PC game focussed podcast but wish they would give themselves the option to discuss non-PC a little more.

lots of fun with games journalists

the rapport of the hosts is very good, and their insights are a little idiosyncratic and 'inside journalism', but interesting nevertheless. The podcast can run a little long, and the audience asks truly dumb questions, so I tend to skip the end segment where they answer submitted questions.
