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.

Isn’t hindsight a wonderful thing? Listen to Ash and Simon in this week’s podcast as they utterly fail at discussing anything to do with sports. On top of that, we’ve also got our usual questions, what makes us happy, as well as a challenge about whether celebrities are older than household inventions! This is a games podcast, we swear. Enjoy, friends!

This week’s episode sees Simon taking the reigns to do something a little bit different. In response to something Gareth asked him on the podcast a while ago, Simon went on a bit of a journey to find out the answer to a questions he’d rather stupidly never considered. Is the LGBT community being represented enough in video games? So, sit back, and enjoy this special hour of investigation, learning and some fantastic interviews with many LGBT people across the gaming community. If you enjoy it, please do share this around with others. We’re all about furthering the conversation here, and would love to spread this as far as possible. Enjoy, friends.

It’s E3 week! Did you catch it all? No? Well then worry not, Simon is here to guide you through the mess of information that came out during the week. Joining Simon is our L.A. games correspondent man Dan Maher, or, TV’s Dan Maher to you and me. So sit back, relax and let us tell you all about those three Es.

This week’s #ExAlPod is special in many ways. One, it has Dan and Simon recording outside because it was too hot in the office. As as result, special guests this episode include many airplanes and an opera singer. For real! It’s also special because we’ve got a whole load E3 chat ahead of next week’s event. Enjoy, friends!

And we’re back in the room. After last week’s coin-tossing shenanigans, Gareth finds himself suspended from the show for podcast truancy, while Simon gets let off because he edits the show. In this altogether more conventional episode there’s talk of Doom, Starfox Zero, PKTball, Fallout 4 mods, Overwatch porn, Pikachu’s controversial name change, the return of Cinemaware, the sad fate of Videogame Nation and the difference between localisation and censorship. We also squeeze in a game of Heads Up!, video clips of which can be viewed on our Facebook page.
