Zone 17: ‘Tartarus’ with Charlotte Cutts.

Charlotte has written for VG47, Destructoid and many more, and is a talking head on the Cane and Rinse podcast.

This is an episode where we talk all about writing for sites when in a totally different country, alongside working a full-time job. I also get fully introduced to a series that I’ve not known much of until Smash Bros’ recent update made me aware of it, so Charlotte explains what the games entail.

Zone 16: ‘Sherlock Snake’ with Ben McCarthy.

Ben is the developer of Obscura, a fantastic camera app which I use much more than the stock camera app from Apple these days.

We, shockingly, go all into Ben’s history with Metal Gear, his favourite moments of the series, what he would like to see next in a new entry, and just which entry and boss stage he’s picked.

Zone 15: ‘Shuriken’ with Vic Hood.

Now that EGX Rezzed 2019 is over, it’s time for a chat with the ‘Possum Leader‘, the constant rising star of Games Journalism in the UK, and someone who’s always been willing to listen for when times have been challenging to many of us freelance writers.

Moving to London from Ireland just a few short years ago, Vic has completely gone for it, rising to the challenge and securing a job as the resident Games Writer for Tech Radar. We talk all about her story up until now, alongside thoughts on remote working and mental health.

(To note, there’s some talk of me going to EGX Rezzed in this episode, but a broken ankle stopped me from going a week after this recording. Next year it is!)

43: ‘The Looking Glass’, with Richard Devine.

To finish off this season, Richard Devine, Editor of Windows Central and contributor to the Mobile Nations family joins me to talk about his history with the company and writing in general.

We also talk about his history with the iPad, and why he’s bought the new iPad Mini which was recently announced.

To note, we recorded this on the day the AirPods were announced. Or, more accurately, a half hour after. So we talk about AirPower, alongside our thoughts on the now-gone media event.

Another returnee appears on the show, previously appearing on #17 of Outpost Show.

A talented writer and novelist, with his latest novel in his ‘KESTREL‘ series; ‘TOLL‘, being released last December with book 3 already in the works.

We talk about our love of the Nintendo Switch and where it could go for future versions. I also ask Matt what games he would like to see ported to the system, alongside deciding on a future Twitter bio for his profile.
