Emergent Gamer Podcast

Video games we're playing, news, and pseudo-intellectual opinions.

About the show

The Emergent Gamer Podcast was founded in late 2014 by Lockeandkey and Felix Hergood to talk Destiny. Soon after, they were joined by Trip Zero and Neo Aoshi. Our format has expanded to include casual video game discussion, unpacking news points, games we're playing, and pseudo-intellectual tips on what's awesome.
