VGO has been churning out stupidity and gaming since 2004, making it one of the longest running podcasts of all time. Hosts John “John’s Arcade” Jacobson, and comedy creator Michelle Madison, explore all things gaming from console to PC, with a healthy dose of random insanity in between. Live every Tuesday, VGO is home to a unique community who participates in the shows via listener voicemail (call 1-520-FEEL-VGO), the IRC chat room, and their often totally worthless tweets.

Chaotic Fun

I listen to a lot of gaming related podcasts, but this is one of my faves… Yes, there’s some immaturity (John!!). Yes, there’s some SonyPony fanboy-ism (Matt!!). And yes, there’s Michelle… but it’s still fun to listen to! I get a lot of good game recommendations from them and that critical fun these 3 have with each other is hilarious at times. Just be warned, if you hear mention of John having a song for that episode, get the skip-30-seconds button ready…

My first podcast ever listened to in 2012

Jump started my love of listening on demand/ podcast. John is the best, even with Michelle keeping him grounded. Probably needed, keep it up, even Matt!

Best gaming podcast ever!

I like ants! 🤘
