Great Game Development Podcast

I just discovered this podcast last week and ripped through all of them. Great discussions and like the inclusion of women from the development community. My only gripe is that they seem to cut short at times when the discussion really gets going. Keep them coming!

Very informative and great panelists

I've been listening since the inception of this podcast. I am not interested in becoming a game developer, so I know I am missing a lot of great info, but the topics are fantastic and the guests have very relevant experience and have a good mic presence (for game developers!). If you are into games, indy games, and creating games, you will love this podcast. It's not a huge time investment, but super-informative! Way to go Tronster & Bret!

10/10, would bang

Good guest speakers, good sound quality, knowledgeable host. Only gripe is that they aren't longer or more numerous!
