In my opinion

Out of all the podcast I listen to while working, this is my favorite. They have a nice flow in their conversations. Ian and Pat certainly have good chemistry and enjoy how they start the podcast with casual random topics that’s not game related. Their tone keeps me in tune without zoning off while binge listening while I am painting in a paint booth. Interesting how their taste in gaming and experience are often similar to mine. I am a bit older (44 year’s old), but they do bring up my favorite childhood memories.

Two Man-Babies Complaining

This is by far the worst video game related podcast. These two are the biggest e-beggars in the retro gaming community. Ian and Pat scammed people out of $30,000 to help Ian pay for his back issues. Ian is a ex drug user and Pat is one of the most awkward people on YouTube.

Patreon for a guy who lives in $1.8 mil home??

Stop the patreon. You live in a $1.8 million dollar home you purchased for $1.2 over three years ago. Your home has acquired more equity in the past 3 years than most Americans will make in their lifetime. Stop asking for the patreon nonsense. Sell your merchandise and books but please stop with the patreon. I still like what you do and I know you work hard. But stop.
