I love all the different perspectives they have and the topics they choose are great. Give this one a listen
In My Top Five
I enjoy this podcast like listening to my best gaming friends talking about topics they really are into!
I may be a bit biased
I may be a bit biased, but I do enjoy the difference that we bring in this podcast. Instead of reviewing games (go to the site for those) we talk about topics within the community. It's just a little different than the norm. Plus we have representatives from a bunch of different locations which gives a wide variety of backgrounds.
