Botch Games Podcast

This extra episode focuses on objectivity, subjectivity and the roles of media. Craig is joined by Matt from the League of Nonsensical Gamers and Brandon from the What Did You Play This Week Podcast and they discuss why we, as reviewers exist, who we're a benefit to, and our role as intermediary between producer and consumer. I sincerely hope you enjoy this discussion and thanks for listening!
