Xbox-focused with smart insights on the industry

Been listening to the Xbox Expansion Pass since it started a year ago and it has quickly become one of my favorite Xbox-focused shows. Luke’s enthusiasm for games, gaming, and the stories behind the games is infectious. Each episode is a joy to listen to - featuring news, game impressions, and insightful interviews with developers and other industry figures. Add this to your weekly gaming podcast rotation - you won’t be disappointed.
