    Hole feat. Tom Zalatnai

    Hole feat. Tom Zalatnai

    Holes. We've all got them, some more than others. As we dive down the rabbit hole of Hole, remember to take care of and look out for your holes along this journey. Are you oiling them regularly? Can they open and shut with ease? Do they still deploy torpedoes at a regular rate when people inside you prepare them? Are your holes rated to handle the pressure of the deep ocean so the people inside of you stay safe?
    In this episode: Giovanni gets stuck, Tom throws dice, David is literal, Greg pulls out the imaginary dictionary
    If you'd like to help us maintain the hole that is this podcast, consider joining our Patreon for as little as $1. Or leave us a rating or review on your podcatcher of choice.

    Wall

    Wall

    Ok folks, it appears we've made a si able mistake. Somehow in making jokes about an invisible  , we've seemingly made all  s we try to type invisible. We were just goofing, you know, just getting ja  y with our words. I don't know what deity has caused this. None of us are particularly  ealous in our religious beliefs, yet this certainly implies some kind of digital force that has messed with what we can or cannot do. If it wouldn't cause a ba illion emails to get sent to us, I'd blame "Arthur Smarts" for this.
    In this episode: David hits the wall, Giovanni has heard enough, Tess keeps trying, Greg has gotta go fast.
    If you'd like to help us investigate this ontological phenomenon, consider joining our Patreon for as little as $1. Or you could always posit your theories in a review on your preferred podcatcher.
    Games discussed: Elden Ring, Sea of Thieves, HYPER DEMON, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

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.
