A Band of Gamers (ABOG)
Video games and music. Two hobbies in one podcast. An excuse for three best mates with many miles between them to hang out, talk about their favorite hobbies and drink a few brews together. Episodes include video game news, impressions and reviews along with new albums, gigs and record collecting.

Shane wrestles a beaver on top of side B to the sound of crunchy guitars and bagpipes. Joel celebrates the equinox by attending a great local show and feels embarrassed by his Amiibo purchase.
