Cool Knights Dad ,

Some podcasts are so good you rate them more than once

Longtime listener here. I rated the podcast years ago, but a lot has changed since then. So when my wife and I caved and got our oldest kids cell phones I decided to commandeer the phone and write another, more updated review. First off, originally I gave this podcast 5 stars, and while the show has evolved over the years I’m happy to report that mttg is deserving of many more than just 5! Seriously this is far and away my favorite podcast. The hosts are good, caring people and I’m happy to call them friends. The community is full of gamers who are compassionate, smart, and a joy to interact with. I can’t wait to see how the podcast continues to grow, and rest assured I’m along for the entire ride. You guys are the best!

These are good people and this show is great!!

MTTG is a perfect blend of gaming chat and real life talk. The tag line says it all, kids, wives and 9 to 5’s, which is something a lot of people can relate to. I don’t have any children myself, but I am a gamer in my late 30’s. It’s refreshing to hear a group of fellas of similar age speak about their love for gaming, and the responsibility of being an adult at the same time. You can tell that these guys are genuine when you listen to them, they all seem to be honest and transparent people who don’t hesitate to let you in to their lives whether it be good news or tragedy, and that is something I really appreciate. I’ve been listening since the Tim Hall days and plan on listening for years to come. Much love from the DMV (DC, MD,VA) fellas, if you are ever in the area hit me up (@squilliedee on Twitter). Oh and... try to show Xbox a little more love y’all, I know you kiiiiiiiiiinda try to, but let’s try a little harder (looking at you TR😉). ✌🏾

1❤️.

Friends I never knew I had

This podcast is great to find friends I never knew I had or thought I could have. Listening is great when I’m at work and the discord I just joined seems to have welcomed me. I’m so glad I found this podcast randomly on Spotify. Even though I only got that kid, no wife, and I work that 8-6 I still feel welcomed. 5 stars all the way
