Solid

Great podcast! Wished they would bring it back. I heard the entire podcast in chronological order starting with Episode 1. They touched on many retro gaming topics with an emphasis on the Super Nintendo era. They also covered a bit of current gaming news as the months (and years) went by. At first, their audio quality was quite amateur but over time they bought more equipment to refine their sound. It was nice to hear them evolve and grow in their broadcast skills as well. Both hosts are quite memorable, have likable personalities, are opinionated and knowledgeable of their topics. Recommended for those who are into gaming nostalgia, especially of the SNES. Thanks guys!
