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.

Everything's slightly different this week, from the incredibly suspect listener-generated episode names and transformed news section, to a Great Debate that features very little in the way of debating and a challenge that, for the first time, is provided by our special guest. We're not really sure what's going on, to be honest. We're scared. Hold us.

Prepare to listen in awe to the wise words of amateur Amazon reviewer 'Freedom Of Speech', who could teach the professional critical community a thing or two. There's other stuff about Call of Duty, Assassin's Creed Unity, Halo 5, Overwatch and sausage roll-inspired homicide, but really it's Mr. Speech's show.

Regular listeners might spot that this week's intro theme is the first to be inspired by a listener suggested episode title (Ep33's in fact) - we're open to suggestions for future songs, so start sending them in! Episode 42 doesn't answer the ultimate question to life, the universe and everything, but we do find out who the gang would team up with to blow up Parliament, and discover what game Simon would make featuring a drunken toddler and a Fleshlight. Spoiler: it ain't pretty. Also! Chat of first-person GTA, the return of Denis Dyack and the future of mobile gaming.
