Garnett is Back!
For those of you who missed Garnett’s awesome Weekend Confirmed, this is a welcome return to the intelligent and thoughtful perspective on video games that we have come to expect. This show is a solo effort, but he manages to keep my interest the entire time. Well done.
If you like intelligent games discussion, this is the podcast for you. Garnett was the first host of gaming podcasts I listened and to this day no one has surpassed him.
Garnett is amazing
I've been a fan of this guy for a little while now. Weekend Confirmed was amazing and so far this show is great. Everything he's involved in seems to be high quality. Also, check out Jeff Cannata and Christian Spicer on DLC! Another great gaming podcast.
