It’s quackin’ awesome

Just a fun podcast! They pack in a lot of game talk into a relatively short podcast and each of the hosts all feel like they could be your best friends. Give it a listen and you’ll be quacking along with the rest of us!

Great Show!

I’m a recently indoctrinated quackaloper, and find this show to be just what I’m looking for in a gaming podcast. The sound quality is great, the discussions are interesting, they have great senses of humor, and the episodes are frequent but not too long. Keep it up and I will definitely keep listening!

Great show with some interesting segments

The hosts are very passionate and the ideas they have for segments feel fresh and interesting. I started out a little put off by some growing pains as the show got started, but I have come to really like the show and appreciate all the work that goes into creating it. Well done.
