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.

You'll get more than you bargained for this time around. Bill betrays his family, exploits his son's fears and has a mild Segasm, while Joel tastes brawler defeat, exhibits signs of a DmC stroke and cuts the proverbial cord. Things get weird as shit after talking about the Midwest Gaming Classic and we both struggle with saying our goodbyes.

Bill and Joel co-op with the community to discuss co-op. First off, positive examples and then a thought provoking discussion regarding the future of co-op specifically what we'd do with the genre if we had an unlimited development budget and no technological limitations.
