A podcast about games (but really cryptids)
Jiggle Physics is easily one of my favorite podcasts, as the three hosts break down games and gaming culture in fun, refreshing way. They’re not afraid to tackle serious issues but always bring a great sense of humor. Between the segues, the terrible accents and the cryptids, this is a lovely bunch you NEED to be listening to. Highly recommended!
A Diversity and inclusion Podcasd
I used to really enjoy Jiggle Physics. It was all about gaming. But they've stopped talking about games and just talk about diversity and inclusion with some movies, tv and personal stories having nothing to do with gaming. I usually fast forward through the non game content and an hour and 40 minute podcast turns into a 15 minute podcast.
A fun show where they sometimes talk about games.
This is a really fun podcast to listen to that covers the latest news about the gaming industry. The hosts really do a good job of putting their opinions forward about a game, and are more than willing to state when they have not played a specific game enough to get a proper opinion about it. To top it all off there is a consistent theme of Cryptids, Kaiju, and other “mythical” creatures in the podcast that just help make it a very entertaining listen every week.
