Solid video game coverage

Sometimes I get behind on video-game and comic-book developments, and this show helps me catch up on what I missed. Clearly the guys have a passion for the things they discuss.

Nerds look no further

The TWIG crew makes covering the entire nerd spectrum every week seem easy. Game reviews, nerd news, great banter, and a pleasant dose of geek history adorn every episode.

I had the pleasure of meeting these fine gents at a few local cons, and the hilarious chemistry is just as present in person as it is on the air.

Also, these guys are the genuine article: true to form, bona fide, card-carrying geeks. Their thorough knowledge of the subject matter reflects brilliantly in the show.

If your aim is to keep your fingers on the nerd pulse, THIS is your podcast.
