Love this podcast great host, great games. And no achievement needed.

Where is the passion?

This podcast has one host "Jeff" who is ok to listen to but the other guy is such a drip I can't remember his name. Too boring losing consciousness. Seriously guys get fired up when you record or start a new age meditation podcast.

Dice All Day ,

Lotsa talk about lotsa games

This podcast, though rambling, at least rambles about games most of the time rather than getting diverted into other topics, and refreshingly spares the nonsense, though the main host comes off as somewhat jaded and joyless a good deal of the time. One suggestion: The music is poorly suited and too loud. Dump it..?
