Really holds my attention

I just discovered this podcast yesterday. From my standpoint, the loud soundtrack and overall flow of each episode do seem to capture a bit of the spirit of Pine Cove. I love the games that the hosts play thus far, and the interviews, though surprisingly short, do hold my attention.

I grew up going to Base Camp/Camp in the City and have seen the promos for some of Pine Cove’s branches. This podcast was a pretty pleasant surprise for me as a result. It’s slightly annoying when everyone talks over each other during the games, but it also makes the experience more realistic, so there isn’t much worth complaining about in that regard.
