The Explosive Alan Podcast
Join Dan, Ash, Gareth and Simon as they jabber through the games they're playing, tear through the week's most interesting news stories, attempt to outdo each other in weekly challenges, and invite the community to share their opinions on heavyweight gaming issues.

We may have had a week’s break, but we certainly didn’t have a week’s break, if you catch our drift. Gamescom got in the way is what we’re getting at. Yeah. If you want all the hot goss from the world’s biggest games convention you’re probably better off listening to a different podcast because we played a massive ONE game between the four of us (though, to be fair, Si wasn’t actually there). Still, this podcast is good at other stuff!

Breaking Bad's return to our tellies not only inspires the title of this episode, but also a discussion about gaming's ability to produce storylines and characters as nuanced and memorable as the best TV and film has to offer. Before all that though, there's the usual topical jibber-jabber and another fiendish challenge to contend with. Go podcast!

The Explosive Alan Podcast doesn't have any censors to answer to, hence this episode is absolutely riddled with graphic descriptions of mucky sex, actual murder and gratuitous swearing. Well, it could be if we wanted it to, but we're above that sort of thing. Well, the first two, anyway.

Goodbye Fez II, we hardly knew ye. The gang (think The Get Along Gang rather than The Crips) briefly mourn Phil Fish's melodramatic exit from game development before moving onto the usual heady cocktail of chit-chat, succinct news, tricksy challenges and topical debate. All in under an hour. Just call us the Vision Express of the podcasting scene.
