A Band of Gamers (ABOG)

Video Games and Music Podcast

For fans of both video games and music. Keep your finger on the pulse of the fast-paced gaming industry with the latest in big news and impressions. Then discover the illuminating, irregular beat with a spotlight on great indie content you may have otherwise missed including video games, records, bands and craft beers. Delivered in a casual, conversational style by three positive-minded best mates who use the podcast as a means to find time for each other every other week outside of their busy lives, families and careers. It's like joining good friends in the pub for a chat and some laughs.


Created by Joel and Bill in 2012 originally as a website and supporting podcast for a community of gamers to write and share video game reviews. Bill left a year later and Shane joined thereafter. A music component (Side B) was added and was already a part of the heritage. It's in the name. Karl became the third co-host in 2014.

A lot has changed throughout the years including a few tweaks to the format, but lifelong friendships have formed between Joel, Shane and Karl. Although the guys enjoy providing value and an entertaining show, ABOG continues on so the three can have a built-in excuse to get together every two weeks.
