    It’s back!

    Gaming and Giving is streaming live on Twitch.tv from 4th December at 5pm GMT and this year we’re raising money for three more charities: Mermaids, Action Aid and Centrepoint.

    Once again we’re trying to raise £20,000 to split between all three charities, but this time there’s a twist. This year we’ve reached out even more games companies ad developers, like Czech Games, CoatSink and Devolver Digital, Grant Howitt and MacGuffin & Co plus a few more, to give us some awesome prizes that you enter to win simply by donating!

    Also, based on your feedback we’ve created a special ticketed backstage space for you to come and mingle with both the cast and crew of Rusty Quill as well as your friends from the chat! All proceeds from the ticket sales go directly to the three charities - take a look at our website for more info.

    So come join in at Twitch.tv/rusty_quill between 5pm GMT on Saturday 4th December and 5pm GMT Sunday 5th December and help us raise money for some amazing charities. See you all there!

Hydratic77 ,

I really didn’t expect Martin to end up being my favorite but he is.

I adore this podcast and am now re-listening to the series starting at the beginning. I always appreciated the content warnings for the episodes. Just fantastic, give it a listen!! PS: Basira can get it 🤪

An 8th grader’s thoughts

I have been listening to the magnus files for a while now, and even though I’m not even to the third season, I am still finding connections and clues that go far beyond what I was expecting of this podcast. Absolutely worth a 5-star rating, and I highly recommend, whether my age or older.

Best of the best

I’ve listened 3 times all the way through. Nothing has yet to fill the void Mag has left me with. It’s perfect
