TalkRadar Compendinarium

OH HI! Glad you could come in and visit TalkRadar: The vile, award-losing podcast that's been delighting an extremely small portion of the internet since 2008! That said, we are better than that other podcast you listen to! Go check iTunes and the 5-Star rating we're sittin' pretty with if you don't believe us, or the amazing community of nitwits we've spawned in our lively forums. Above all else, TalkRadar prides itself on being funny and entertaining. You'll hear the latest coverage of the best upcoming games, as well as sound clips and music from the older ones you already love. Let this page be your gateway to all our previous, built-to-last nonsense. Note the content descriptors, so you can find the filth that suits you best!
