Best Gaming Podcast
This is the most thoughtful gaming podcast out there. Which is a strange thing to say about a show that includes the New York Giraffe.
The review element of the show is solid, but it's the broader reflections on gaming that set the show apart. Also, while they do sometimes deal with industry and game journalism insider stuff, they manage to avoid making it self-involved.
Also, the new monthly format seems to have made a good show better.

Funny and informative
I've listened to the besties since the beginning and have always found that they do a great job of discussing games in a fun and entertaining way. The new format allows for more quality of information in each show, and they frequently make me laugh. I recommend this to those who want a fun gaming podcast. Keep up the good work guys!
