    Another great show (and I listen to a lot of gaming podcasts). Could you tell me who did the intro music as it is brilliant?

  2. The intro is all Kev.

  3. Hey guys, I am midway through my first episode of the podcast, and I figured I’d chime in on something you were discussing; if you’d like to know more about why so many channels are packaged together rather than letting customers choose the channels they want, I recommend listening to the Planet Money Podcast #488 which explores the topic.

  4. Hey Dave, Pacman and Kev,

    I’m Mark at Brute Force Games. We JUST launched Star Drop, our new game on iOS. It’s a physics-based puzzler. We’d LOVE for you to review it on the bigredbarrelcast.

    Alternatively, my brother (owner of brute force games AND actor in our video game reviews at would love to be on your show sometime. Even as a simple interview. We’re reaching out because we like your humble, down-to-earth approach to game discussion.

    Thanks guys,

    Hey guys-
    Love the show and I especially dig the theme song- it’s really catchy and probably the best podcast theme song of them all (albeit with some tuning problems with the voices/harmonies). Keep up the pro effort!

    I would just like to say I love your guys’ work. The cast both has high quality material and simultaneously you manage to seemingly get to each and every fan individually which is just something that doesn’t exist on other sites. You are really in touch with the audience individually.
