The Level is a podcast for people who love video games. It's a weekly roundtable hosted by friends and industry outsiders Kole Ross, Ben Merkel, Dennis Furia, David Moneysmith, and Jala Prendes. Every Friday, we discuss video game news, the games we've been playing, and listener mail.

Customer Reviews

For people who love video games

You can get industry news and game reviews from any number of places, but this "industry outsider" podcast does the best job I've seen of capturing and sharing the experiences that video games bring us. In the end, those shared experiences are what make games and the gaming community great, so it's refreshing that The Level focuses there instead of on the business side of the industry.
(Full disclosure: I'm a co-host.)

Insightful discussion on games!

The Level is my favorite all-purpose games podcast. Compared to this shows predecessor, Stand Under the Don't Tree and Riddle Me This, they've added a lot of well-needed structure to the show, and the result is a streamlined experience that is much more digestable. Here's what to expect: the hosts go over their thoughts and reactions to the games they've played in the past week, which serves as a nice appetizer to the meaty discussions on game mechanics and design choices (from the player's POV!) that happen in the second half.

As with most podcasts, the personality and interaction of the cohosts is of supreme importance, and here they come up capable of deep discussions without wasting your time on hemming and hawwing through their thoughts.

Guys talking bout games

Guys be talking bout games. For all your guys talking about games needs. A really good implementation of that
