Gamers With Jobs - Conference Call

Reviews For Gamers With Jobs - Conference Call

love hearing the opinions of what i consider my peers, dad gamers. Also love the banter whenever there is a disagreement.
I’ve listened through the 2018 podcasts twice, and now with the update I can listen back to previous years. On the May 30, 2017 episode, Sean Sands reminded us once again to go leave a review, nay, a five star review! So here I am, thanking you guys for all you do. Every person who is involved on the call and with the call, every guest, and also what you all do on your personal feeds and in your own lives to educate and perpetuate the world of gaming. You have a great cast and chemistry and I so look forward to every Tuesday or Wednesday of a new episode dropping. The experiences and interests of the cast is varied and I really appreciate that. I found this podcast in a rough patch in my life and was immediately hooked. Thanks for all the shows, please keep up the good work.
Is this a gaming podcast or a politics podcast? I don't mind podcast hosts with opinions beyond gaming, but the hosts' politics on this show pervades everything they discuss. These Canadian hosts denigrate and make snide comments about how US politics are run by Russia while their own head of state is buying prostitutes for Qatari princes while simultaneously pretending to be woke af. Stick to the games. More SJW than GWJ.
I don't have time to put 40 hours into a game in a week, I can't even put 40 hours in gaming in a month. But on my drive to work I can get a warm fuzzy feeling listening to people talk about games who are at a similar phase of life as me. All the hosts are great and it feels like listening to a good group of friends week after week.
I have listened to this podcast for over 10 years. I can’t listen to it anymore because one particular newer host is like listening to fingers nails on a chalkboard. I have tried to tune out when this person speaks, but I have decided to just move on.
I've always loved the positive vibe and insightfully mature conversations GWJ has. So I find it strange that they support someone who can’t have a mature conversation, is constantly adversarial, and blatantly verbally abusive to her community. Jessica Price acted in exactly the behavior you describe as wrong. This makes me think of library patrons and especially the immature kids (which price resembles in the situation). We have children at the public library that break the rules, make people uncomfortable, and are confrontational. They get kicked out of the library even though they call everyone “racists” on the way out the door. No one is running to these kids defense saying, “you all are racists! You made minority children leave the library!”. They were in a public space, they broke the rules of the social code that the community or entity has established. And they face consequences for acting in a terrible manner. When someone really is racist, they have consequences. Roseanne got fired, the racist pool guy got fired, unfortunately Trump isn’t, but there is obvious backlash. Now a sexist confrontational anti-man poster child lashed out after an easy to find past and had repercussions for it. Yours is a very skewed representation of this situation. If I called a parent at my school an “asshat” over social media I would be told to apologize publicly or I would lose my teaching job. You can’t ask others to be respectful and accommodating when someone like Price is a representative of the movement asking for better behavior. If Arenanet didn’t have rules regarding social media, maybe they were heavy handed. But the way she acted is not acceptable as someone publicly representing her company. And they sure better have social media rules going forward seeing how someone like her can bring so much vitriol to her public communication.
Love the show, but is there a way to access all of the episodes? Podcast app only goes back to Nov 2017. Keep up the good work!
I've been listening for years (and years) and only now getting around to rating on iTunes (not my platform of choice). Intelligent, interesting and informative discussions - and also a really enjoyable listen.
It's just that. GWJ offers great variety in their discussions of game and platform types and the GWJ-ers come to the topic with enthusiasm measured with experience.
They talk about more than just what the new triple A games are.
Ignorant people.
As a gamer with a job I don't have as much free time as I'd like. This crew catches me up every week and does it with out yelling. There is no ego here. Just some fellow gamers producing a fun and informative podcast. If you're considering listening. Do.
This podcast has sufficiently replaced GFW for me. The conversation is witty and entertaining, and is much more mature than most videogame podcasts. That's not to say GWJ doesn't have its immature moments, but by and large it is well worth the subscription. Edit --I'm still listening regularly, 8.5 years later. They've added a few to the rotating cast, and it has never been better.
This is always in my rotation of great gaming podcasts.
Like games? Then this podcast is for you. A great mix of characters join the show every week to discuss the latest in gaming. They touch on a lot of different genres and interesting games you might not have heard of. Listen and be happy.
Do you have a job? Do you love Video games? Perfect! Listen and enjoy
I've only been listening to GWJ for a year now, but I am extremely impressed with the quality of the podcast. The GWJ Crew is always well informed about gaming related news. Their discussions regarding the games they've been playing are always high quality and they are able to beautifully explain in either a few words or great detail what they are loving or loathing about what they've been playing all while keeping the podcast clean and not having to resort to swearing. I love that I can listen to the GWJ Crew around my kids and not be worried about if they're gonna start going low brow because they never do. The GWJCC has a structure to it that flows and is nicely paced. Though I feel it's the perfect length I'm always left wanting more and eager to listen to the next episode. Bonus points they read my email about esports on the show one time and spent a good long time discussing it. I was as giddy as a kid on Christmas morning listening to that segment.
Love the guys and gals of GWJ. Huge fan of the format of both electronic and board games, great guests and dangit I wish I lived stateside to drop in on some of the meet ups. Top notch stuff and been listening forever.
I've been listening to the GWJ crews for a few years now and they have consistently been funny, witty, and informative. They have developed great chemistry and it is always a delight to hear them speak.
I always felt like I didn't have any one to talk to about my passion for video games until I found this podcast. Sometimes they discuss the exact things that I have been thinking. They have genuinely deep discussions about video games, but also love to joke around. Also, it is a very professional podcast and they post every week consistently.
I can't believe I've listened to GWJ for 7 years and have never written a review. Love the show and the incredible community around it. Seriously the only gaming podcast you need!
There are very few podcasts I look forward to every week, this is one of them. The GWJ crew is amazing and their various opinions and preferences make for a great panel on what is currently happening in the gaming world. The GWJ community is a wonderfully collaborative, supportive, and rare compilation of gamers from all walks. This is the best gaming podcast out there in my opinion.
I have never been much of a podcast person, but after recently getting my first gaming PC in about a decade, a good friend tuned me into this. It is now my Wednesday ritual. I anxiously await each week to hear this crew joke and chat about games. Thank you GWJ crew for the many "microsands" of entertainment!
Been a GWJ listener for many years, still one of my favorite podcasts. I love a podcat that can make me feel like I'm sitting in on the conversation myself with a good bunch of friends. Thanks to the whole GWJ crew!
Highly entertaining with an incredible history of episodes behind them
I have discovered more games from listening to Gamers with Jobs than any other podcast in my listening routine. Plus they cover board games, which many video game podcast do not. Listen to a few eps and see for yourself.
When I started listening to podcasts a few years ago, I knew I needed at least one video game-related one, so I tried out a bunch. It was quickly apparent that GWJ would be my go-to, and today it's essentially my only video game podcast. The team is great. The personalities, articulation, thoughtfulness, and most importantly, overall maturity, can't be beat. GWJ is exactly what a podcast of its nature should be. The format and the topics are great; both strategically and executionally, they've pulled it off. It's not an exaggeration to say that even after three years, I always look forward to my weekly GWJ podcast, and I honestly don't know what I'd do without it. I should probably write in more emails though...
This is just a great podcast. I've been listening for years, and I still love it. It's casual while still staying on topics, hilarious while still being very informative. I almost always get games they talk about positively, and always love them. GWJ is great. Subscribe.
A friend recently tipped me off to the GWJ conference call - and I've been pleased to find it an interesting weekly discussion about all aspects of gaming from a diverse set of voices. It's nice to hear about games and gaming issues from a perspective that is similar to mine more often than not (not that it's needed to appreciate this podcast). They cover all kinds of games - all genres, PC, console, mobile, single player and most flavors of multiplayer - and have clued me into a number of under-the-radar gems that have been taking up (too much of) my freetime. Give them a try!
These guys haven't missed a show yet, I've been a long time listener and have come to value their opinions and appreciate their discussions around one of my favorite hobbies (especially Sean Sands, he's the best!). They have an outstanding community that inspired me to visit them with other listeners at a "slap & tickle" in Seattle back in 2007 around PAX and they are all genuinely awesome people.
Even if you disagree with the show hosts' take on individual topics, it can't be denied that this show excels at presenting grown-up's views on playing games, and why those matter.
If you are into video games and are not listening to GWJ, you are really just wrong. All hail Game King and his minions.
A mature and diverse take on games and gaming industry.
I didn't finish the episode... because one of you jackasses decided to have music playing in the back ground... and it was progressively getting louder...
This entire group tries their best to sound like they have gaming knowledge and experience, but they fail. Most of the time spent doing a “review” is used comparing it to another title and how it was either returned on Steam for a refund or should not be played, because the compared game is better.
This podcast is consistently entertaining. There is a feeling that these are real people who would be fun to hang out and chat with. They also have several reviewers on each episode discussing video games from a variety of perspectives with regard to what types of games they love. This has been useful in deciding which games I would like.
I've been listening for years and the GWJ crew is always on point. They're consistently entertaining, always play a great variety of games and have fun chatting it up with each other. Can't recommend enough.
Over the years, I've whittled my podcasts down and this one has always been there. They're all nice, fun, and very knowledgable. They're more PC based but do talk about the console exclusives. They pretty much hit every gaming topic, even board games. Their community is awesome and active. I've learned a lot and picked up quite a few gaming staples on their recommendations. Definitely give them a listen. Hopefully you'll love them too.
I've been listening to the conference call for years now and it's always been a great listen for insights from people who are not usually part of the discussions in the wider media. Their insights are unique and honest, and usually colorfully shared.
Wanted to be #500 for you guys but I guess I’ll settle for 506. Great show.
Knowledgeable, friendly, and very easy to listen to - I dig this podcast. Sean Sands is my favorite (of course it has to be the Game King) - but, all the regulars on the show are knowledgeable and a delight to listen to. Thanks for the great podcast guys - I look forward to my train ride to work whenever a new one arrives! (and that is heady praise, indeed. )
This is a great gaming podcast from the perspective of grown men (and women) who still love videogames. I love getting my update on what's going on in the gaming world on my way to work every morning.
I really love this podcast, though. He begged for this review, but I didn't give him the one star review he asked for, because I WON'T BE TOLD WHAT TO DO!!!!!! @robertjdefendi
Here Sean are you happy now! Do I get a prize?
Listened for years. A great cast of regulars and guests. The community built up around this group is one of the most mature and hospitable I've ever seen on the internet.
Long time listener, first time writing up a rating! By far one of the best gaming podcasts available. Keep up the good work!
Love this podcast. The crew is funny and insightful. Highly recommended for past and present gamers.
This is a top tier podcast, of any kind, let alone games. Gamers are lucky to have insightful insiders like the GWJ crew to frame and break down gaming culture. One of the best shows out there. It's DEFINITELY worth your time!
This is the podcast that got me hooked on podcasts!
