Join self-proclaimed geeks (and actual sisters, and sistahs) NinJaSistah and Pandalicious each week as they share their unique opinions on video games new and old. From console gaming to mobile, "triple A" titles to indie game releases, trade show coverage and even one-on-one interviews, these ladies review and preview it all. Sprinkle in a little bit of anime and tech gadget and a whole lot of randomness and you've got yourself an episode of the ESHcast.
||ExplicitESH Cast #590: I don’t know what I saw, but here’s what I think I saw||It's always difficult to know what's real at E3 and what's not. You sit and watch a trailer for an upcoming game that looks like the best game ever made and it inevitably disappoints. Conversely, the game you saw at E3 that looked like another average||6/18/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitESH Cast #589: The last time there was a leak like this, Noah built himself a boat||Of course, the "leak" we talk about in this week's title is the big leak made a few weeks ago by WalMart Canada. It's the reason this week's announcements at the E3 conference weren't quite as surprising as they might have been. Ninja and Panda talked||6/10/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitESH Cast #588: You got reality in my fantasy! (You got fantasy in my reality!)||We dredge up an old TV commercial from the 1970s to produce this week's title. Do you know what the commercial was about? Well, that doesn't matter. What matters is that Ninja and Panda get together for the last time before the big E3 show goes on in L||6/4/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitESH Cast #587: Mistakes were made||We usually choose a good, long, verbose title for these shows. Not this week. This week, we could explain it all in three simple words. It's all because of the new video game Detroit: Become Human. Detroit is one of those games that have been talked ab||5/28/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitEpisode 586: It could be a lot worse, but it’s not||Those hopeful words are delivered in the first few minutes of this week's show by Pandalicious. It matches the hopeful attitude she takes throughout the podcast, even when NinJaSistah talks about the difficulties she's encountered from white, male play||5/21/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitESH Cast #585: If you haven’t watched Infinity War, you won’t now||How soon is Just Right? That's the problem the Sistahs face every week. Ninja and Panda talk about new games, new anime and other topics of general interest, but after almost 600 weekly episodes, they're still not sure just how much they should reveal||5/14/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitESH Cast #584: It’s not the worst anime I’ve ever seen, but…||Having done a video game and anime podcast every week for the past 12 years, it would be correct to say that not every anime we've ever watched has been stellar. We've seen the good ones. We've seen the bad ones. We'd like to say that we love it all, b||5/7/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitESH Cast #583: Everybody’s gonna die, but not until the next one comes along (Rinse and repeat)||NinjaSistah jumped right on the newest iteration of the "God of War" franchise, and she gives this warning right up front this week: If you don't want to know the ending of the game, you don't want to listen to this show until you've played it.

||ExplicitESH Cast #582: I haven’t finished it — and it hasn’t finished me||Any long-time listener of the ElectricSistaHood podcast knows that Ninja loves her some God of War. The game, in its many incarnations, has been the subject of many a discussion over the last 12 years. And, while Ninja hasn't loved every version of the||4/23/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitESH Cast #581: Just keep repeating to yourself: It’s only a game - It’s only a game||Some games are there to give us brand new experiences, in places far from our normal existence. Other games hit a little to close to home and make us uncomfortable. That's the case with the brand new game Far Cry 5. It's set in a world that we recogniz||4/16/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitESH Cast #580: This is how tangents get started||No, we aren't talking about geometric tangents. That's a whole 'nother podcast. What we're talking about is the kind of tangent that always shows up in our podcasts.

||ExplicitESH Cast #578: Higgledy? Really? Higgle deez nuts!||There's a point in this week's podcast that sound suspiciously like a question from the old game show The $20,000 Pyramid. And you'll find yourself playing right along with the Sistahs as they try to figure out the solution to the question: Things That||3/27/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitESH Cast #577: Topics must be properly marinated before we can talk about them||In the early 2980s, actor Orson Welles hawked Paul Masson wines on TV with the tagline, "We will sell no wine before its time." Just like California wines, the sistahs have the same attitude about video games: They would prefer to sidle up to them a wh||3/19/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

She had no intention of playing Monster Hunter World. And then her husband came home an proclaimed that he had bought both of them a copy of the game. W||2/26/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitESH Cast #574: Let’s hear it for the Sistahs!||Perhaps a better title for this week's podcast episode is "Let's hear it FROM the Sistahs!" That's because "hearing" it is what this week's show is all about. Panda and I have taken a break from recording this week to recharge our batteries while we're||2/19/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitESH Cast #573: This game turns gritty, violent crime into a party||Long-time listeners are going to hear something different at the beginning of this week's show.

Truly the mostest awesomest gaming podcast
Gaming podcasts are a dime a dozen. I'm really surprised that more people don't piddle themselves about this podcast. Three completely awesome chicks talking about games, tech and manga? And not just that, they talk AUTHORITATIVELY on games, tech and manga. They run a tight show and it's always hilarious and informative. Independent podcasting at its very, very best.
Wow, now subscribed for life!
A very high quality podcast. Most podcasts lately are just the disjointed recordings of someone rambling on about whatever they want. NOT THIS PODCAST! These ladies know what they like, and have a passion about it. Listen now!
Best F'N Podcast Ever
I have listened to the last 4 episodes since they have joined the all games network it is easily become my favorite despite listening to the other gaming podcasts for years, this is an incredibly funny and entertaining/informative podcast which easily deserves 5 stars
