BAD END is a videogame podcast brought to you by videogame critics and videogame makers. Each episode we talk about what we've been playing, and then dive in on a specific game, new or old.
 
We're a lifestyle podcast hosted by adult gamers trying to juggle our hobbies with the increasing demands of the "real world." Join us each week to catch up on what we've been up to lately, whether it's saving the world from space aliens or learning how to change a diaper. Check out our web site for links to connect with us on YouTube, iTunes, Stitcher, and more, at gamelifebalance.us. And if you like what you hear, then please leave us a review!
