At the old day job soon after listening to the above, I spent an entire week listening to multiple past ‘Geshcast‘ episodes, and I was sold. Funny, enjoyable, and relatable. Then, I joined the Cult of Geshcast, a podcast series he currently does with co-leader Phil, where they discuss past cults in each episode.
Here, we go through the history of his podcasting, and his guesting on other shows, alongside his illustration career and our two mutual favourite documentaries.
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.
Now that EGX Rezzed2019 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!)
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.
Jordan is someone who has been killing it with the freelance writing these last twelve months. Having recently graduated with a Masters in Journalism, he’s written for the Daily Star, IGN, Rock Paper Shotgun, and many more so far.
He also runs a site called Quillstreak, which goes into all aspects of games, alongside a podcast; Quillspeak.
We talk about his journey with it all up until now, alongside a topic that has been on mine and many others’ minds recently: Can remote working work for a full-time career like this, or do all paths lead to London?
