Welcome to Under the Plumbob Podcast.

This is the best hour of my week!
I've literally spent the last half an hour trying to write an eloquent review that would do this podcast justice. I can't find the words. All I can say is that this is hands down one of the best podcasts ever. There's the right mix of information, fun and tangential side notes (Team Tangent FTW!) to make this the perfect way to de-stress. Thank you guys for doing a such a great job! 😍
Everything you need
The podcast is everything you need for a sims fan? I love looking back at the previous games and learning about aspects of the game I have no idea about! Plus the girls who host are amazing even with the tangents 💚
The Sims podcast you’ve been looking for
Been listening to this podcast for a few months, and I look forward to each new episode. The hosts are all brilliant, funny, salty, well informed, and cover a range of topics from news, pack reviews, Sims lore & more (listen to the episode about gaming as a female, it’s fantastic)! It feels like you’re sitting down with friends and talking about your favourite game.
