    #170: The Best Houses To Live In In Games Special

    #170: The Best Houses To Live In In Games Special

    There was a small recording blip at the start of this week's podcast, but apart from the opening banter we've got a great episode this week. We open an estate agent to appraise the houses in games that would actually be good to live in. It turns out there aren't that many. Not a lot of them would be convenient.

    There's an excellent Cavern Of Lies this week, in which Nate hosts a game-themed episode of Through The Keyhole in character as Lloyd Grossman/a robot version of Matt Berry. We also have some great diversions, and some opening chat about the time my friend was a real life suspect in a murder for a few days. Plus: Matthew had an unpleasant experience watching House Of Gucci.

    #169: Our Most Anticipated Games of 2022

    #169: Our Most Anticipated Games of 2022

    Happy 2022! New year, same old us. The Electronic Wireless Show Podcast will make no effort to change or better ourselves; this is our promise to you, listener. For our first episode of the new year we're doing the traditional "what games are we most looking forwards to" episode. Yes, our most anticipated games. There is very little crossover, and lots of orc chat.

    Before that, though, we're lucky enough to have scored an interview with the "It's me, Blorko" guy. Yes, we have the man who came up with this winter's most fashionable Marvel-based viral tweet, live and on the podcast (I mean, technically he is on the podcast every week but this week we ask him about the Blorko thing for like 20 minutes).

    #168: BAH GAWD! That's The Christmas Special 2021's Music!

    #168: BAH GAWD! That's The Christmas Special 2021's Music!

    God rest ye merry listener, let nothing you dismay - for today, for one night only, the EWS Podcast wrestling promotion rolls into your town for a show stopping tag team match. Each of your pod hosts fields a three-game tag team of our favourite games of the year, and fields them in a spectacular(ly described) ladder match. The victor will claim the GOTY In The Bank briefcase and win the chance to compete next year as well.

    Before we get to that, though, we must first discuss (at length) whether 200 t-shirts is a lot of t-shirts, what Nate is having for his Christmas dinner, what kind of cop duo would be named Halloumi & Date, and also what our favourite Christmas songs are. Nate also does a really good Mankind pun.

    #167: The Best Children In Games Special

    #167: The Best Children In Games Special

    I'm not normally a fan of children in games because, as noted in this episode of the Electronic Wireless Show podcast, they get into the uncanny valley pretty quickly. But it's the season to be jolly, so we're talking about the times we thing kids in games are actually really good.

    We do end up going on quite a lot of tangents, notably one on which Warhammer faction Matthew would play, and of course we ask Matthew for his thoughts on Mr. Beast's Squid Game. This week's Cavern Of Lies is in Nate's control, which means he takes us to Dwarf Fortress, with predictable results.

    #166: The Best Cars In Games Special

    #166: The Best Cars In Games Special

    Let me start out by immediately apologising to our podcast editor Alix for the fact that this best cars in games episode of The Electronic Wireless Show Podcast does not mention the Regalia from Final Fantasy XV. Mea culpa. But that glaring mistake aside, we do have a bit of a chat about Forza Horizon 5, and other good cars in games and car games in general.

    We also have a very good Cyberpunk-themed Cavern Of Lies courtesy of Matthew, who has no updates on his Olympic feud this week, but does reveal (during a long digression about whether or not we, personally, can drive) that it took him nine goes to pass his driving test. Nine honestly seems a bit excessive.

    #165: The Best Drinks In Games Special

    #165: The Best Drinks In Games Special

    This week, based almost entirely on the fact that we have been enjoying Rio Tropicale (other fizzy drinks are available) the Electronic Wireless Show podcast is doing an episode all about our favourite drinks in games! We didn't think we'd manage to get a whole show out of it, but boy did we.

    Also tune in to learn about Matthew's new (and extremely one-sided) rivalry with an Olympic swimmer, a cavern of lies featuring bar tender Ed Harris, and a digression so self-indulgent we talk about how self-indulgent we are, and decide that it is a good thing.

Self indulgent in the best possible way

I started listening to the EWS in 2020 during Covid and it quickly grew into the highlight of my podcasting week. Episodes often take 10 minutes (or more) to get to the topic at hand, and after that quickly spiral into digressions to digressions, personal anecdotes involving teeth and aquariums, and deep cuts into bizarre podcast lore. Yet somehow this all comes together into a tremendously entertaining hour that captures much of what I love about gaming as a hobby. It’s a wonderful break from normal gamer culture.

The older episodes are good too but the current crew of Alice, Matthew, and Nate make this podcast truly exceptional. Thank you!

“Well good then there’s going to be a lot of nonsense in this episode”

Of all the podcasts I listen to, this is the podcast I am the most excited for each week. Alice, Nate and Matt are a brilliant trio and the intro/sting music is wonderful.

Best gaming podcast about food

It’s just the best podcast full of bright folks, belly laughs, and the occasional gaming related discussion that normally careens into delightfully inane yet devilishly entertaining topics.
