Not a gamer and I love this show
This is hilarious and interesting. You just need to be interested in stories and psychology to love this show. Sound effects and music are amazing. I feel like I really get to know your guests. Can't wait to see who you guys bring on next!
Video Games + Jokes + Stories = Yup
This show is great. The segments are hilarious, the guests are all interesting, and the stories are so much fun. Even when they're talking about a game I don't really know, I want to listen just for the jokes and the psychology angle.
I rarely write reviews but this was exceptional
I have been listening to podcasts for a few years now but this was the first one that I felt I had to review, it was really funny and interesting at the same time. Can't wait for more content!
