In the Deep End - A Gaming Podcast

By Jesse Gregoire and Damiano Gerli
Drowning in video games and dragging the industry down with us. Won't you hop in?
Join journalists Jesse and Damiano in the murky, deep waters of the bottomless gaming backlog as they discuss their latest catches, what's going on in the games industry, and talk to guests who work in, with and around video games. Listen if: you want to hear your favorite games industry individuals talk about their work, you like to discuss games new and old, you want to get to grips with the inner workings of the video games industry, you want something that's equally serious and lighthearted.
