Great game industry insight and chill vibes

Gwen shares a lot of her great knowledge and expertise from her AAA and indie game experience. Her interviews with game developers get really into nitty gritty gamedev topics you’re unlikely to hear in conversations with typical games press.

When Chris is on the show, they do a great job of having natural conversations from filling each others’ knowledge gaps.

Highly recommended!

A different take than most video game podcasts

There's a lot of podcasts out there that talk about video games, but The Dialog Box feels like it explores the industry from a different perspective. Gwen provides an industry perspective and business acumen, while Chris works more on the PR/promotions side that is under-represented. It's honest. It's fun. I look forward to it every week.

Insightful and funny

Having been a follower of Chris before this podcast started and knowing his brand of humor I felt right at home with this podcast. Gwen brings a lot of great insight to the show with her knowledge of the gaming industry and together they make one of my personal favorite podcast duos out there.
