||ExplicitEp 16: Jessica Saunders, Salix Games||Way back when, in May 2016, I was due to host a Rocket Jump Event in Guildford.

||CleanEp 13: Liana Kerzner||Yet again a real life hero of mine has joined me for a chat. This podcast business is working out alright, huh?! Now look, I have something to tell you.

||CleanEp 12: Charles Griffiths, Cavalier Game Studios||This is easily one of the most informative (and subsequently longest) episodes I have ever recorded - and that is entirely down to Chuck and how unbelievably willing he was to impart his advice and experiences from his years in the games industry....||1 5 2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanEp 11: Iain Angus, Creative Assembly||Iain's career spans not only a range of wonderful companies and games, but also disciplines.

||CleanEp 10: Ben Murch, Perchang||Ben Murch must have had a crystal ball when he was a child because he just knew that the Games Industry was where he was going to end up... I'm kidding - he didn't have a crystal ball, but what he did have was passion, talent and hard core...||5 3 2017||Free||View in iTunes|

||CleanEp 8: Dan Leaver, Dreadbit Games||Dan Leaver is one of those guys, one of those incredibly personable and lovely guys, who did the thing that most people would be terrified of doing: One day he just quit his totally non-video-game related job and forged a career in Video Games. He...||1 1 2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitEp 7: David Bridle, Imaginati Studios||David Bridle (or '#Bridle' to his friends ;) ) has had a truly varied career - which came as a surprise to me, it turns out that despite working together for 4 years I knew little about his history!

||ExplicitEp 6: Cherie Davidson, Media Molecule||Let me paint you a little picture... It was a cold evening in April 2016.

Storys about video games and their industry! What's not to like?
Introducing a new video game develoer every episode, this podcast illustrates their journey from first seeing a game to where their career has lead them now. Their storys are interesting, inspirational and often funny too.
With a strong grounding with Lionhead Studios, a wicked intro music and with craziness that is controlled enough not to be too scary (just a little though), I would strongly recommend it as the podcast is "super cool" after all.
Love love love
