Thank you for being a Gem!

There are certain shows that just hit you. It doesn’t matter how long time has passed—as soon as you hear that familiar intro song, it’s like boom! You’re instantly transported back home—grinning from ear to ear while catching up with old friends. That’s Genesis Gems for me. As a friend of both Nick and Aaron, I have always admired them and how kind, likable, and easygoing they are. As podcasters, they’re such a great team and the fun and chemistry is genuinely felt in every single episode. If anything, I believe Gems has only gotten stronger over time! Sure, Nick and Aaron could talk about anything, and I’d listen, but the fact that they talk about my favorite console one game at a time—come on—it’s a no-brainer! Genesis Gems and 2 Dudes and a NES will always stand as the two definitive retro gaming podcasts that truly hit me in the heart, and the fact that they’re still thriving over a decade later only solidifies the fact that they’re podcasting gems! (I say that with sincere affection, 2 Dudes!) From a Retro brother to another, thank you guys for being a Gem! Game on!!!

16 Bits of Awesome!

In the 8 Bit era I was Nintendo all the way. But for me the 90’s was the era of the Sega Genesis. It was the console from my middle school years and this podcast really takes me back.

If you were born between 1980 and 1985 you need to listen to this podcast. And if you want to experience the greatest rivalry since the St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs, you can’t go wrong with a Genesis Gems and 2 Dudes and a NES binge.
