Dark Insight

An International Video Games Podcast

About the show

We're a video game podcast with hosts from all over the world. Started by Londoner Cliff Goldsmith in 2015, he quickly recruited VaderVanOdin from New Zealand to be his co-host, with Jeremy Greer (US) we then brought on josh Crow. Jg and Crowe have now left the team but we have bwade, Kassandra and Matt now as part of the full time line up. Each week we bring you a different line up of people, views, topics, and feedback from our listeners.
