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.
July 30, 2015 As the world closes in, you sit alone in a dark room, sweaty and tense, your eyes unwavering from the events unspooling on the monitor.

July 8, 2015 Unlike some, we live in a bountiful place. A place where the stars stretch out before you, full of life and endless, a place where soccer is played by not just Mario but glowey demons and even cars, a place where every gun is unique even if that is the last thing you want. We live there so enjoy all of it.
