Covers a lot of games in a short period of time

These guys are my first go to podcast every week because I know I’ll get a lot of great content quickly.

Interesting and well done

Great podcast. I find that my tastes and Anthony’s are quite close which makes this a must listen for me. My only complaint is that they often state the game title so fast and never repeat it that I sometimes miss which game they are talking about. That said, I am a stray and enthusiastic listener.
