Video Game Outsiders, the official podcast of the comedy network, Riot Cast, has been churning out stupidity and gaming since 2004, making it one of the longest running podcasts of all time. Hosts John “John’s Arcade” Jacobson, and comedy creator Michelle Madison, explore all things gaming from console to PC, with a healthy dose of random insanity in between. Live every Tuesday, VGO is home to a unique community who participates in the shows via listener voicemail (call 1-520-FEEL-VGO), the IRC chat room, and their often totally worthless tweets.

Listen once, and you're hooked! (kind of like prescription medication. Or Cheez-its.)
This podcast is as good as it gets when it comes to contemporary gaming news. The trio of hosts have a chemistry and charisma about them that is tremendously infectious. I listened the first time for an update on what was happening in the gaming world. Nearly a year later I'm still listening every week becuase they never fail to make me laugh on a weekly basis. If you have ever enjoyed playing video games and have even a smidgeon of a sense of humor, you need to download this podcast. Now. Seriously, right now. You'll thank me.
Like hanging out with the buds.
There's a reason the three-hour morning talk radio format works. It's because people like to listen in on lively banter among hosts. This show has this in spades. It's not about the news. It's not about their superior gaming knowledge. It's not even about the fact that Kyle apparently bakes pies. No, this show is about chemistry. The three hosts are just a blast to listen to and the typical hour and a half podcast flies by. As for the subject matter, I trust their reviews and opinions BECAUSE they're not experts. They're just regular Joe's (and I guess a JoJo) who never fail to make me laugh. And let me say, there's something to be said for consistency. This show is always there on Wednesday or Thursday. If they take a week off, they tell everyone ahead of time, but even this is a rarity. Definitely worth the weekly download. My personal favorite on the topic of video games. It doesn't even matter that they predominantly play a system I don't even own. It's still the best listen of the week.
Good fun and good video game discussion without all the pretention. A refreshing approach for adults who are tired of the 3l33t g4m3r k1dz!
