About the Show
We're a video game podcast with hosts from all over the world. Started by Londoner Cliff Goldsmith in 2015, he quickly recruited VaderVanOdin from New Zealand to be his co-host, with Jeremy Greer (US) and Josh Crowe (UK) after that(also I'm here now! -Bwade). Each week we bring you a different line up of people, views, topics, and feedback from our listeners.

It's been a little while, but here we are with another episode of Dark Insight! First off, we planned to release 2 episodes this week, but technical issues resulted in one of those episodes being postponed until the near future. Unfortunately, at the time of this particular recording, everything was still full steam ahead, and thus Josh does mention the aforementioned second episode during this recording...to discover after the fact that this was not the case. Please bear with us, in this grand old age of communication we are still finding the odds stack against us occasionally. What can we say? You've gotta love it, eh?

The podcast slingshot is primed and ready to fire another episode of Dark Insight at ya!
After the break last week we return for another show, where an exhausted Cliff returns and is joined by a knackered Josh and a groggy Vader (who'd only just got out of bed, like a champ) to discuss some vidya gaems.
There's a brief discussion regarding the travesty that was the Mighty No. 9 physical Kickstarter mix up, how the Switch appears to be out-doing everybody's expectations by selling a ridiculous amount of units, Josh details his trip to London Comic Con and Cliff was lucky enough to be given the first 2 episodes of the new Little Nightmares comic. There's also a quick bit of follow up regarding Jalaid and the, frankly, heart warming response to that. Thank you to each and every person who was involved, even to the most minute degree. Just a tiny amount of effort and make the world of difference.
