Great indie game reviews and news for Play date console

Very nice podcast which covers the indie hit handheld console Playdate (the beautiful yellow console with a crank) and the news, games and developments around it. New episodes come out roughly twice a month which is a great pace for a podcast about a smaller console. The hosts get along great and interact nicely and don’t talk over each other or constantly interrupt each other getting sidetracked.
