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 are joined by ABOG Extra Life teammate and special guest Will Mackellar (TGWPIS and Battle Cattle UK) and they share, among other things, their experiences from Extra Life this past weekend. Includes a hefty 'Now Playing' section and closes out with a fresh tune from Foreign Goods.
