ABOG Podcast - Video Games and Music
A young at heart trio keeps you up-to-date with the fast-paced video game industry. They also help you discover new music by recommending a record and playing a fresh tune from an independent artist.

Shane and Karl survive poison and vampire bites by channeling their super powers, playing video games and spinning records. Must be another episode of ABOG wherein Joel can't come up with the creative words to describe a stellar episode.

VR is a walk in the park to ABOG regardless of the price but they still prefer the old fashioned controller and monitor set-up for gaming. Speaking of monitors, Joel shares the scoop on his new television and then Shane and Karl worry about their PS4's thanks to the added power of the 7th core. This and the usual what they're playing, listening to and another fantastic tune to close out the show.
