Worth the Wait

By Ace & 1/2 - May 12 2011

Easily one of my favorite podcasts, gaming related or otherwise. Other podcasts claim to be 'geeky' or 'nerdy' but none compair to the hosts of Armchair (In a good way). Interesting topics, fun and lighthearted the hosts never take themselves too serious. It is so worth the month wait between episodes. Love the show and I think I have crush on Chris Kennedy's voice!

Great Show

If you are tired of "me too" podcasts that follow the leader with each other and only cover things that are the flavor of the week then you will definitely enjoy Armchair Arcade Radio. AAR is not your typical podcast, each member of Armchair Arcade has their own segment (with very little overlap) and they discuss what they want to discuss, this is a great format that serves the show really well. If you want to hear about gaming from the point of view of people that were there when it happened, and survived, listen to Armchair Arcade Radio.
