I used to be a Space Game Junkie...

...then I discovered WoW. Then, I found Steam but also had kids. SGJ has reintroduced me to Space games and reminded me of my fondness for them. Veloxxi is quick with recommendations if you ask. The hosts have a deep knowledge of the genre, consistently get interesting guests who have created lots of classic (and current) titles.

As I can't rate a 3.5, I'm going with rounding up. - The podcast gets an A for content, but a D for audio quality. I'm not sure I haven't heard an episode that isn't plagued with tech difficulties. Discord drop-outs have resulted in gaps of silence and confusion when speaking to guests. Some speakers are too quiet, others too loud, some just sound like they're talking through a rotary telephone.

That said, the unique guests and Space Game expertise allow this podcast to fill a space that none others do as well as SGJ!

Needs a LOT of work

I wish I could give this a higher rating. I really do. But the hosts:
1) are not knowledgeable and constantly make the same major factual errors over and over
2) think they are the most hilarious people in the universe (a failing common to most mediocre podcasts)
3) usually record the podcast while playing a video game simultaneously, both rendering the discussion itself distracted and less interesting, and also somewhat unintelligible if you're not watching the simulcast video.

No one else out there really covers this genre in this much depth and it pains me to give such a low rating, but it's simply not worth listening to in its present state.

Not just the best space game podcast, but the best game podcast!

Long time space game junkie/quarter to three reader who just started listening to the podcast. Loving the episodes so much I'm going through the back issues.
