To say the Giant Bombcast is just about games is to lie, and lie brazenly. Reviews on Yelp get analyzed. Italian nationals find themselves being vomited on. Iceland is penetrated by an intrepid reporter with hair on his head and face. Pneumatic tubes are things that exist. Cake is violated. And where may one find a good, reasonably priced grill? Sprinkled between that is talk of games: musings on the Electronic Triple, on Divisions, and on racist depictions of Italian plumbers. The death of beloved host Ryan Davis put a tremendous damper on the show's proceedings; the years of this terrific program—2013 included—along with the site's other wealth of content serve as a testament to his brilliance and his outstanding character. He gave us a superb work that still continues: the Giant Bombcast, an eclectic and unbeatable grab bag of talk that never fails to entertain.

    1. I think Vinny posted it on his Twitter, but I found it by Googling "young Vinny."

  3. I cannot download either part (or any other mp3s). I continued to get redirected to: https://ssl-static.libsyn.com/p/assets/d/9/0/5/d9055bf3d396f9ea/soapy.jpg

    Any idea what's going on?

    Thanks.
