Very good but keep in mind
Very well put together podcast about the latest Microsoft game console (Xbox 360) and the Live service. Larry Hryb has an excellent radio voice and the podcast is clear and is has a polished format. The thing to keep in mind is that Larry works at Microsoft with the 360 team so its not the most balanced coverage. Still I have not heard any blatant propaganda and he touts the qualities of other systems at times (DS for example) and keeps the MS rhetoric at bay. If you are interested in Xbox Live and the Xbox in general you should defiantly subscribe.
If you can get past...
...the self-congratulatory interviews, the abuse of the word "cool", and the constant pauses Mr. Hryb takes to replenish his saliva, there's a lot of good information here. A mildly frustrating but overall worthwhile listen for Xbox fans.
Major is awesome.
I look forward to these every week.
