Addresses a completely new space

This podcast covers the intersection between game creation and entrepreneurship, both areas that call for out of the box thinking. The hosts are extremely creative at finding guests whose contributions, while not exactly "on the nose" in terms of video game creation and/or marketing and distribution, exhibit a creativity that is often illuminating in a cool alternative way. The hosts' goofy enthusiasm is infectious. And insight into the Chicago indie scene is fun for an outsider as well. Check it out!
