a heart with an arrow through itWhat fans say about the podcast

They remind me of my own marriage!

I honestly love the chemistry that Adam and Liz bring to their podcast! Not only do they talk about subjects that I’m interested in, but their nerd relationship is legit #goals! I love their recommendations, their commentary on the gaming industry and they are so funny together!



The chemistry between Adam and Liz is great. As a gamer (but not as intense as some are) I never have a problem understanding and being engaged with their topics. This honestly feels like you are just sitting in the room with them talking about video games which is what makes it great!



I love these guys, they have great and interesting topics each week, very well researched topics and super hilarious.
