Irrelevant and often offensive, but always funny stuff!
Yug and Matt from AustralianGamer.com put together their Friday Night podcast every week and somehow manage to warble for 30 minutes loosely on the topic of gaming. More often than not the podcast is reduced to drunk rambling, insults, poo jokes or other childish behaviour. Occasionally, they may even discuss gaming. Always amusing, and occasionally informative, Yug and Matt is well worth a listen. It would be better if it featured AJ from Australian Gamer, because man, is he funny! But hey, this isn't a perfect world......
These guys are great. Listening to these podcasts is like sitting in on a friendly conversation. That's what a podcast should be.
Likeable gaming fools
Gaming discussion + crude humour + hosts that have a love/hate relationship = Hilarity. I've been a listener of the AustralianGamer.com's Friday Night Podcast since the beginning and it's simple but extremely entertaining formula has kept me coming back for more each and every Friday night. It's a must listen for any video game fan with a sense of humour.
