Hey Listen!

All Things Nintendo is my one stop podshop for my Nintendo news. Brian is an excellent and professional host that delivers the latest gaming news regarding Nintendo. I enjoy the “ice breaker”questions at the beginning of the episodes with his guests and appreciate the EShop picks at the end of each episode. Keep up the hard work, you are appreciated.
