Hype as it gets

TGD is a really great pod about the world of videogames! Sometimes you just want to listen to some guys talk about all things in the world of geekdom and this does a great job scratching the itch.

Awesome!

Great topics and perspectives! If your a gamer it’s a must add! Also if your into Pop Culture it’s a must add! The current events in Gaming were so interesting. The Amazon debacle on generating a competitiveness in the gaming industry kept me entertained from beginning to end! Not too long and easy to listen to. The hosts have great chemistry. The content is phenomenal!

Great Show About Gaming

Enjoy the chemistry and fun between the two hosts. I enjoy the podcast each week and especially the show involving their Top Mario games. Hard to disagree with the choices. With so many gaming podcasts out there, certainly this is one to listen to.
