This is a great gaming podcast. It offers something very different from the sea of other podcasts that pretty much discuss the same things.
Great Music Games Podcast!
Just one error, The Final Countdown was featured in Lego Rock Band , so It will NOT be in Rock Band 3
John Davison is gone, but this podcast still rocks.
So, as you might have gathered from the title, I started listening to this podcast due to the presence of John Davison (formerly of the WhatTheyPlay podcast, formerly of the 1UP Yours podcast). But even though he was the name that drew me in the first place, I quickly realized that there was a new star in gaming podcasts, A.J. Glasser.
A.J.'s now on my list of podcasters that I'll follow to any podcast (also on this list are people such as Jeff Green and everyone who used to be on GFW Radio, so she's in good company). Funny, down-to-earth, tactful, and most of all passionate about games, A.J. keeps the conversation at GP Culture Club moving, so even though most episodes clock in at well under hours-long length of many gaming podcasts, they cover a lot of ground, on a variety of interesting topics.
