Gaming + Trivia = Perfect Podcast

This podcast is pretty perfect, if you ask me. It highlights lesser known indie games which helps give them a boost -- I know I wouldn't know of half these games without listening to Three Extra Lives. But the show is also interactive and asks trivia questions that loosely relate to the games talked about! It's addictive to answer the questions and the host is super accessible on social media to celebrate your answers! And the best part? The episodes are less than 20 minutes long, making them perfect for a walk or commute. Thanks for making a great podcast!
