a quality podcast!!

If you wanna listen to a funny podcast that makes you re evaluate the meanings of words this is for you! They also sometimes talk about video games. To clarify, I’m coming from the episode “Bowl,” which was lowkey a disappointment, not bc of the lack of video game discussion, but bc I feel like someone should have brought up the weed type of bowl.

Edit: i’m really mad now cause I listened to “Beige” and I want desperately to make a midnight gospel style animation where everything they say that happens actually happens, but I will never have the time or resources to do that.

Fun show about video games that’s for everyone

I’m a pretty casual gamer, but the way these four talk about video games makes it accessible for pretty much anyone. The show is fun and funny, interesting, and thoughtful. Very enjoyable show, highly recommended.

Funny Twist Video Game Podcasts

These guys put a fresh twist on video game podcasts by bringing a topic each week, along with their idiotic senses of humor. Wow... you read reviews and think they sound so fake but then you go to write one and realize this is just how reviews sound when you right them down. Who knew?

Anyway, I look forward to this podcast every two weeks and honestly wIsh it was weekly! If you like it, don’t be afraid to go back to the beginning and get in on some of the running gags. They have layers.
