Lover of the Arts, hear ye! ,

One of the Best

I love the dynamic between Jacob, Mo, and Mike (and all the other guests!). Their format is easy to follow, fun, and freakin hilarious. For anyone who loves video games (even if you’re bad at them like me), this is a great podcast for you. I’m hooked and a forever listener now.

Great Game Reviews!

I’ve been in quarantine, sitting alone, and just blown away by some of the games I’m playing. It’s honestly been such a comfort to listen in to some really creative, intelligent, and funny people talk in depth about some different games. I was about to start yelling at the walls about KR0, so thank you for going so in depth and speaking on some amazing references, thoughts and different game plays!

I LOVE THIS PODCAST

Everyone is staring at me as I jam out to your theme song.
