Hi Simulcast guys,

Just listened to the last few shows today (I’ve been a bit behind because of family matters). I like the random video game talk between Geoff, Bill, and Dave a lot! As a gamer this definitely interests me. I may even check out the Gamemine service that Geoff has spoken highly about…we’ll see.

I have one question/thought. Have you thought about including a segment in your show each week called “what we’re playing”? Each host could talk about the games they’ve played for the week. Nothing to in-depth just a quick 5 minutes or so to appeal to a broader audience.

That’s all, hope to hear this read on the show. Keep up the good work guys!!
