The Explosive Alan Podcast (general)
Join Dan, Ash, Gareth and Nick as they talk games, films and TV, answer the community's questions and attempt to outdo each other in weekly challenges.

It’s episode 95 of the Explosive Alan Podcast! And this week we see the triumphant return of the challenge section thanks to a crafty one devised by our very own Dan Maher… ish. We’ve also got talk of Kingdom Hearts, Resident Evil 7, and OH YEAH, DID WE MENTION WE HAVE A LIVE PODCAST COMING UP ON THE 25/02/17 IN LONDON? Go here to grab your tickets. No, go on, go, we’ll wait…

Happy New Year, everyone! Welcome to 2017! Well, here we are, only 6 days into the year and you already have a lovely new podcast to listen to. But this ain’t your grandma’s ExAlPod, no sir! This week we’re doing something a little different. IT’S A TAKEOVER EPISODE! Gareth has taken the hosting seat and presents to you a potential spin off of sorts in which he’d like to teach you how to be awesome at things. This episode sees him, Dan, Simon and Ash teaching you how to be awesome at surviving the apocalypse! So, from zombies to tsunamis (mostly zombies, to be honest) pull up a broken chair, grab yourself some hot, hot food rationed tea and enjoy this week’s show!

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.

In the wake of 3 busy weeks, a butt-load of work and a brand new baby Alan in the form of Orla Leathem Maher (Congrats to Dan and Helen), Simon takes it upon himself to do an episode ALL ON HIS OWN. Can he do it? Can he be the hero this city needs? Probably not, but he'll give it a damn good try.


No, seriously though, this is a shorter episode intentionally so we can get something out more regularly when we can't all get together to so a full episode. We hope you like it!


We've got Gravity Rush, Jackbox Party Pack 2, Miitomo, Sonic, ALL THE USUAL THINGS! Enjoy!
