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. NOTE: For older episodes and weekly bonus content, please download our app or visit our website VideoGameOutsiders.com

Nate NA ,

Great show with a catch

Show is great. Great video game content show. But sometimes John can get carried away with dumb noises and music. When he isn’t being dumb and annoying it is a good listen.

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…

Female host ruins it…

Constantly interrupting the others.. Very overbearing. Yikes.
