Another Monday, another podcast. Austin Walker hunkered into the bunker for an hour of conversation about the perils of tweeting at brands, my decision to cancel a PlayStation VR pre-order, and if Twitch is the MySpace or Facebook of streaming. We also reached out into the The Question Bucket, which had us thinking about why people give you weird looks for using handhelds in public, and if VR could cause another "violent game" scare with the public.

We promised another episode of VICE Gaming’s still-untitled new gaming podcast, and here it is! As the weekend approaches, we spent an hour discussing Austin Walker’s interview with the senior writer on Mafia III about race, reports that No Man’s Sky has been reported to a European advertising authority for misleading marketing, and introduce The Question Bucket.

Welcome to the newest podcast by VICE Gaming, co-hosted by Austin Walker and Patrick Klepek!
The plan is to record on Monday and Friday mornings, so we can track and discuss the full week of gaming, without worry that we’re going to miss a major story. We’d love to stream each episode, allowing people to tune in and submit questions, but we’re still working out the tech to make that happen. Stay tuned! Podcast gods willing, that could happen this Friday.
What we don’t have is reader questions, but you can solve that right now. Each episode, we’ll choose one excellent, insightful question to be the focus of an episode-ending segment. You can submit potential topics to firstname.lastname@example.org with the email header “Questions.”
But wait, doesn’t VICE Gaming already have a podcast? That’s true! Our UK editor, Mike Diver, has been hosting a monthly podcast for a while, but as VICE Gaming grows, so will our library of podcasts. Mike’s podcast isn’t going anywhere—there’s just more for everyone.
VICE Gaming isn’t just a place to write about games. It should be a community for smart, thoughtful people to gather and think critically about the medium. This podcast should be an extension of that. We may be the hosts, but you’re the reason it works. Join us?
