A podcast I’ve listen to for years

This was the first podcast I ever watched on a regular basis for many years. Never gets old, always love to hear what pat and Ian have to say or talk about, please don’t stop anytime soon! You have so fans who love you two for years and years! Thank you for all the content over the years! This is probably the best video game/video game news podcast that’s on the internet, Spotify and Apple Music PERIOD.

Love the show but…

I’ve been a fan of Pat’s going on a decade now. I’ve help fund both his books, been a patreon supporter for years and have traveled to multiple shows to see him in person. I love the podcast and look forward to listening to it at the end of a busy work week. The only criticism I have is that over the past few years it seems Ian doesn’t really want to be there. He comes off indifferent to multiple topics, wants to cut segments short and is always making comments about the show run time and the food podcast he hosts on the side. I get it, maybe he’s burnt out but he seems to be more focused on the clock than the show itself.

I enjoy it

I enjoy this podcast, I really do. But man these guys are so incredibly negative lol. Almost seems like they are trying to make you hate our common hobby. Lighten up fellas, doesn’t have to be so serious!
