The Best VGM Podcast on the Planet

Hammock hits all my T spots, from the hilarious commentary to the silky smooth VGM jams. I look forward to listening to this podcast every week, and the amount of deep cuts and hidden gems in Hammock's selections are incredible! Even my friends who don't like video game music can't help but jam out to the Last Wave on KVGM.

Pixel Beach Dreamy

Hammock touches on all the right vibes, seemingly not a stranger to eclectic sounds. The Last Wave is stimulating easy listening like working a long day outside on a beautiful high alpine lake, taking some moments of repite to enjoy the lapping water. Wholesome. I love the way Hammock blends fresh foreign jazz and hip hop tracks with 8 bit tunes that take me back to my childhood play throughs Donkey Kong Country on the SNES. The Last Wave is a good one to ride.

The best of the best

A podcast that is somehow entirely crafted to suit my tastes. I love video game music, I love chill vibes, and I love podcast hosts that exude positivity, and let me tell you, Hammock delivers all of the above on KVGM The Last Wave in spades. I’m so grateful for the labor of love that goes into each and every episode. Thank you!
