Great chemistry, excellent podcast
I've never played any of the Megaten games, and probably never will, but these three guys explaining the books and games is entertaining as heck. They have a great chemistry, good audio quality, and a solid topic of conversation. Pretty much the three pillars of podcasting. Definitely check it out.
Great podcast, very entertaining.
Evan is my favorite.
2 Episodes in and...
This is totally my type of podcast. Well balanced. Some history, some walk through info, and personal impressions. Definitely appeals to my inner nerd. Best SMT podcast I've listened to.
