The Scottish Games Network

Podcast Archive

Welcome to the OG podcast from the Scottish Games Network. As we prepare to launch our new podcast for 2022, we’ve moved the older episodes into this archive.

Every week we recapped the week’s news and picked a larger topic to discuss in depth. Listening to the archive now, you can expect friendly, allegedly informed chat on everything to do with the Scottish games industry – from new releases, events and festivals to the business side of videogames and their place in culture at large – in that week.

If you’re on your smartphone, follow this link to our RSS feed and your podcast app of choice should do the rest.

You can also find us on YouTube, via any of the pocast platforms below, or you can search “Scottish Games Network Podcast” in your preferred podcatcher.
