Hazard 0643 ,

The reason I started a podcast.

So I am going to be real honest here and tell you guys that I have little to no understanding of game development or what it takes to make something from nothing using code.

That being said this podcast is an absolute blast to listen to, the content is always relevant and interesting and I find myself just sucked into each episode no matter what it’s about.

I’ve always wanted to start a podcast and it’s because of podcasts like this, Todd is super personal and relatable and always delivers the content in a well thought out and relatable fashion even to someone like me who doesn’t understand his industry.

Really just a great show. Keep it up guys!

Are Pee Gee Fan ,

Yay it’s back!

Great podcast that has everything game dev. A must listen for any indie devs with some free ear time.
