    Console special No.6: SEGA Dreamcast

    The latest of our single platform podcast specials focuses on SEGA's final console, the Dreamcast. Leon, Karl and guests Ben Cartlidge (One Credit Classics) and John Linneman (Digital Foundry Retro) unpick the magic from the smoke and mirrors in an attempt to understand how and why the most powerful console ever (circa 1998/1999) failed to win the hearts and minds of the general public. Passionate prose from the community and a swift(ish) rundown of the machine's diverse and colourful library round out the show.

All Killer No Filler - Best Gaming Podcast

I’ve been a listener for years (not sure why it’s taken me so long to write a review) and Cane & Rinse has been my favorite gaming podcast (maybe favorite podcast full stop) since listening to the first episode.
There are several episodes I’ve listened to multiple times, which cannot be said about other podcasts.
They cover games from all angles, the hosts are interesting, knowledgeable, and funny without veering into the “whacky morning DJ” neighborhood.
It’s just a great, genuine podcast made by great, genuine people.
I’d rate higher than 5 starts if I could.

Professional Format Journalistic Deep Dives into Video Games

I’ve tried a few podcasts and settled on fewer. Cane and Rinse respects your time and the crew keep themselves to a strict format which feels professional and thorough.
This podcast differentiates itself by focusing on games well past their release and spending an entire episode with each game.
I haven't listened to many different podcasts, but all of the ones I've heard follow the same format of "people talking about games like anyone else talking about games." If you listen to their backlogs the discussion will no longer be relevant (except as history) and if you listen to the current episodes you risk spoilers. Cane and Rinse functions like a history of video games. These discussions won't grow old because they're discussing it in a historical context already. They WILL spoil the games though, which they warn you about.
The only criticisms I would have is how often they reach further back than perhaps they should and how the massive variety of games they discuss is beyond the scope of most normal folk.
If you love video games Cane and Rinse offers hours and hours of listening for every stripe of gamer, and extra for avid gamers. All presented in a clean and polite format of journalistic integrity.

Thorough!

Very smart, even analysis of classic games. They find something good to say about everything and are fair with the bad. Love how much listener feedback they incorporate into the show! Good work!!!
