A Must Have Podcast For Gamers
Smart and funny, they know their stuff and keep you entertained. A must have subscription.
Informative and entertaining
Derrick and Jennifer Schommer both bring good viewpoints to the show, offering their honest opinions of the games they play, not opinions that are influenced by marketing dollars. They both enjoy different types of games with some overlap, so it is really nice to have 2 opposite reviews of the same game to help people decide what they might want to check out. The podcast also has some news of what's happening in the world of gaming as well as an excellent segment on legacy consoles and some games available for them, for some really nice retro gaming goodness. The site news is a nice addition as well, keeping listeners up to speed with changes that are going on with the TechDiversions.com website. One of my favorite shows, highly recommended.
A podcast that deserves a listen
As far as gaming podcasts go, this one is unique. It is a podcast about gaming history, gaming news and gaming insight from the perspective of husband and wife gamers. Though they share a similar love of gaming ... the games they prefer are distinctly different.
