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.

Joel and Shane sit down for a fascinating conversation with Milwaukee music producer and engineer Michael Mann of MusicMann Studios. Joel worked with Mike on his recent release Rising EP and realized during those sessions the sense of humor he has combined with his immense knowledge of music and audio would make for a great discussion on the podcast. Mike shares the three cycles of his music career and the path that got him into audio and gets technical about recording, producing, mastering, audio formats and Loudness war. He's a gamer so the guys get him to share what he's been playing lately at the end of the show.
