It's like an audiobook read by the author crashed into a casual-yet-informative "Let's Play" and emerged as a well rounded podcast. There's a good balance of insight and humor and having an actual dialogue between a creator and two knowledgeable players brings a lot of life into the sometimes dry experience of interactive fiction.
Listen without silence removed
Ryan puts a lot of effort into editing this podcast, so I stopped using "Smart Speed" with the Overcast app (it removes silence for faster listening). All that sweet, sweet comedic silence.
I like this podcast enough to rate and review it on iTunes, even though I don't use iTunes. That's how much I like it.
Great content, terrible sound mastering.
The content of this podcast is excellent. I love that it exists, I love its wit and the high caliber of the guests. Sadly, like so many great amateur podcasts, the sound mastering is terrible. Jenny always sounds about 100% louder than Ryan and the episodes with Hamish McIntyre are nigh unlistenable because it sounds like his mic is inside his throat. Please fix this for future episodes.
