Crossplay Conversations: A Video Game Podcast

Do you feel like you’re the only person in your circle who wants to go deep about video games regularly? We were like that too. Every other week, we dive deep into gaming industry topics and host light-hearted conversations around our favorite video games. With a combined 15 years of video game content creation, Luke Lewis (LukeWarmGames), Joseph Hooper (Player Player Podcast & Can’t Pause) and Jacob McCourt (Left Behind Game Club, The Gaming Brief & Video Game Trivia) publish their gaming group chat in audio form. The gang is here to break down the latest and greatest in the world of gaming with a mostly positive, insightful and fun style. Consider Crossplay Conversations as the Voltron of Video Game Podcasts.
