The best video game podcast

I’ve been procrastinating writing a review (mostly because I listen on Spotify) and I was like it’s about time. I love this podcast, I was not really into listening to podcast until I found this one. I had just moved to a new area and didn’t know anyone and listening to you guys talk about video game news and the industry just brought life into my Fridays. Keep doing what you are doing, take breaks, and have fun. It’s truly a joy to listen

I downloaded the podcast app to leave this review

I’ve been listening to these ladies (on Spotify) for almost 4 years now? I’ve been here since Alexa Rae was still a solid fixture in the studio.

I love them. They’re funny, they’re solid, down to earth, they loves video games and they have such a wide variety of taste that I’m never listening to them hush about the same things constantly (it’s okay, I get the Destiny/Pokémon/Resident Evil hype). Riana is such a fabulous addition to the team and honestly, I could not gush about you guys more.

Stay funny, stay true, and keep being your awesome selves! ❤️

And Andrea, I hear you. I just don’t have twitter.

Back Look Cinema Podcast ,

Wholly Great Gals

I've been listening for a while, now and I thoroughly enjoy this show. These young ladies have such great banter between them. They manage to keep their show light and fun. The show is impressively informal and informative, and I really dig the good natured vibes that they give off. It's definetly one of my favorite pods.
