One of the smartest gaming podcasts around

A great podcast if you appreciate deeper discussions into games than the usual brand of Gamer Podcast (you know the type). Trevor always gives insight into the ways politics are expressed in games and consistently gets very interesting guests with expertise in a variety of different subjects. Come for the great interviews with people like Night in the Woods’ Scott Benson and Giant Bomb’s Alex Navarro, stay for the Marxist analysis. Don’t sleep on it!

Don’t recommend

Seems like it’s mostly just losers complaining about actually successful people and popular things 🤷‍♂️ skip this one

Gaming Criticism at its most daring and insightful

There’s 50,000 gamer podcasts, and they’re all about 2 or 3 people palling around and playing games. They sound like they’re having fun, but it’s just not interesting to listen to.

No cartridge is a podcast that lifts the hood on game creation. It takes political theory, economics, art, gaming theory, and many other vantage points to examine the state of games today. It’s also fun to listen to, with interesting guests, an insightful host and a willingness to take risks. Hit play.
