What kind of magic is this?
Jagger Gravning (Kotaku, Kill Screen, Motherboard), Dutch Mogul (Thingiverse, Ill Gotten Games), Laurie Banks (Little Sister Gaming) and Joshua Quail (Nerdist) merrily discuss video games as a new frontier of aesthetic expression. There's a different topic each week, as well as a special guest. Sounds like fun. It's fun to have fun.
PannenKoek2012 & Gamescom 2014!
He's the man who found the unkillable Goomba, and collected the uncollectable coin in Super Mario 64. Splashed across the front page of Yahoo, Kotaky and more, he's the irrepressible PannenKoek2012, the single greates font of wisdom for all things Super Mario 64. It's a fascinating discussion. (Also pinch hitting for DutchMogul is DigiPen's favorite son, Doug Zwick.)

Covers the questions and topics you wish you could ask
My favorite thing about the podcast is that it's always really casual questions with a great variety of guests, stuff that if I met up with devs at a con or something I'd want to ask. Love listening to these guys!
These guys have great rapport. I'm not a gamer, but I still love their wit and unique perspectives. For me, this podcast is totally playable. :-)
Go for Rainbow is the best podcast in the known worlds
Of all of the podcasts I've listened to, this one is my favorite, and I've listened to, like, five or six podcasts.
