A Band of Gamers
Gamers who love music. Stay current with video games and discover new music with one podcast. Two hobbies in separate segments by aging best mates who love keeping up with the latest trends and platforms, playing new games alongside their retro favorites and recommending great records.

Shane doesn't know anything about Cricket, Karl put on 15 miles a day and Joel appreciates a good work-life balance.

Joel is gullible, Shane the king of eye-rolling and Karl perhaps more in the middle as they react to Microsoft's XBOX 2019 E3 Briefing, recap Google Stadia Connect, talk about Grim Dawn and recommend a record for fans of high energy punk.

Sony and Microsoft partner up in their usual battlegrounds, Game Pass coming to PC, Rage 2, What Remains of Edith Finch, dusting off the old PS3 and two record recommendations. First is an EP for summer festival conert goers who gravitate towards the 80's rock cover band and second for fans of 90's British rock with a bit of punk occasionally poking through.
