New, Amazing, And Entertaining.
Well then... The other day I was looking for a good podcast that was just kicking off, wanted something new so I wouldn't be missing a whole lot...
What a find! Great commentary that never gets old. Downloaded the first four episodes and I have to say each one left me with an insane amount of lols and nostaligia. Good for Geeks, Gamers, Nerds, and Dorks alike! Listen, Love, Enjoy.
Nerdy and looking to talk about things of the past?
This podcast is really good and is entertaining to those who like nerdy things of last generation. Its just the host and his guest, that is usually one of his friends, talking about video games, cartoons, and whatever else comes up in conversation. You really have to know your nerdy stuff to keep up sometimes.
