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.

Fantasy Factory rides on two wheels into Joel's and Shane's mugs and out pours much video game discussion (and rainbows).
