Idle Thumbs

A weekly video game podcast.

Idle Thumbs is a weekly video game podcast full of in-depth discussion and absurdity. Between overly-enthusiastic dissections of their latest gaming experiences and baffling phonological explorations of Jeff Goldblum's name, the cast has managed to find a regular audience of dedicated readers. Scoop up the latest episode and hear us extol the virtues of whatever we've just played, attempt to answer reader mail, and get sidetracked about space.


Weekly, publishes Wednesdays.

You glance down to admire your virtual arms. They're huge.

Things Discussed: Her Story, LEGO Jurassic World, Batman: Arkham Knight, Spider-Man 2: The Game, Fallout Shelter, Piloteer, Faceted Flight, Tales from the Borderlands, Sleep No More, DisneyQuest, Aladdin (SNES), Aladdin (Genesis), artificial intelligence
