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.
