Rewarding in many ways
This is the best video game podcast out there. Every week you get an honest look at the triumphs and failures of various parties involved in the games industry. This is done in the most fun and entertaining way possible. The hosts are knowledgeable about the games industry and its history and use this to enrich the listeners understanding of news stories and gaming trends. Beyond this, the host Caspius teaches the listeners about subjects like poetry, cricket, and classical literature. One of my favorite memories regarding this is when Caspius read through "The Once and Future King" providing insight into the novel along the way. After listening to the podcast you leave well informed about video games and the world which is a fantastic thing.
All the stars!
This podcast is so tremendous it got me teen pregnant! Recommend having contraception and/or home abortion kit present lest you end up with any unwanted suprises yourself.
Consistent and Engaging
Every few episodes you'll find an engaging discussion on gaming news. However, it's like mining for gold fast-forwarding through cricket news and story time. Personalities are great and you can expect an episode every week.
