Best Game Podcast
Jason, Maddy and Kirk are my favorite voices in gaming journalism and criticism. They are knowledgeable, thoughtful, experienced and most importantly opinionated. The have great takes and offer full picture views of games and how they were made and who made them. If you play games and think about them critically at all this should be required listening. To make things even better they are all great, funny people!
Love this show. The hosts are varied and come at the topic of video games from different perspectives and backgrounds. They also discuss movies, books, and tv shows they’re into and I’ve gotten some great recommendations from the three of them. Give it a try!
