A Band of Gamers | Video Games and Music
Gaming podcast with a flip side. Side A Video Games and Side B Music. Over-the-hill best mates geek out about video games, recommend records you may have otherwise missed and drink good beer. Podcast is delivered in a casual, conversational style by positive-minded co-hosts. They share what's in their pint glasses between the two sides.

Take a seat on a memorial park bench, it's time to listen to a new episode of ABOG. Slow news period in gaming but there's still plenty to rant about including anti-social media, cheap platinum trophies and the end of a long-running addiction. Recommended record from Khruangbin, Joel's Valentine's Day with Valerie June, Karl's guilty pleasure record and a potentially pricey Gorillaz pressing for Shane in music. Side C details ABOG's Midwest Gaming Classic 2018 plans and they're so good a special guest might make the long trek from Europe to join in.
