A brilliant podcast brought to you by Jeremy Dunham who hosts many interesting guests. Episode 3 was my personal favorite, when Brad Shoemaker, Dan Amrich, and Andy Eddy discuss the fundamentals of breaking into videogame journalism. "The job every kid in america would kill to have," as they mention once in the podcast, was somewhat of a misconception of kids dreams in my opinon. Sure traveling the world, getting behind the scenes at the top videogame conventions, seeing what few gamers see until the release of the actual game, and making new relationships with interesting people from the office that last a lifetime. However working for a website as incredibly popular as IGN or Gamespot requires alot of work. It frustrated many workers to seek new and even better jobs. But the time you spend with these websites is precious, so making connections and getting to know the big players in the industry is key as they mention in the podcast, and that time you spend there can give you a good base for seeking a new job in the game business if you wish.
