Like banter with friends

As an enjoyer of games, movies, books and good banter, this is a great listen for my work commute! It’s like every day at my house and my conversations with my husband and I love every minute of it! Catch them live on You Tube for a very wholesome experience! Great duo!

Excellent analysis of what makes a game worth your limited time!

Love the relationship, the banter, and that they are no longer married to a single game. It's great to hear analytical discussion, a critical review, and the ability to be a huge fan of a topic, while still being able to critique it.

Great Listen!

I’m new to the podcast world of Garret and Kyle, and I’m super stoked to have great new content! If you love video game discussion, art comparisons, cocktails and cute fuzzy dogs then this is the show for you!
