Left Trigger Right Trigger

Join us every other week as we convene the 'video game book club.' Each episode is structured around a topic: anything from 'Trust' to 'Robots' to 'Body Parts'. Listen in as your hosts each bring a game to the table that they think exemplifies that topic in some way. Give us a shot, won't you?

Dads... What are they? Who are they? How did they come to be? These questions and more tickle your ears as your hosts plumb the depths of Dadhood, Fatherhood, and Daddyhood. Join us for the Second Annual Left Trigger Right Trigger Father's Day Dadstravaganza: Dadliest Catch. Your intrepid hosts discuss all things Dad-related: How to get that perfect Dadbod. Where to find your Dad when he disappears on you. How to know if the person you're speaking to is secretly a Dad. Tune in as we celebrate Father's Day the only way we know how: by making a podcast. 
You can pull our fingers over on Facebook and Twitter. Alternatively, consider tuning in to our YouTube channel while you nap away in your barcalounger. Lastly, why not write us a nice Father's Day card on Apple Podcasts, where we'll keep it on the mantle as a memento of your love.

Well it's the Big Show (oh) it's the Big Bad Show tonight. Er, not tonight specifically, but maybe just on this episode?
E3 2018 looms over us like so many giant, muscular wrestlers, ready to slap us in the chest in a hard, loud, and frankly embarrassing fashion. Your hosts are here to give you a hardy Abdominal Stretch as they discuss the rumors (and promises) for this year's E3. Greg gives a Big Boot to an adorable pikmin-like project. Dave comes in with a Sidewalk Slam related to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Giovanni Chokeslams some indie game. Colin sends you to dreamland with a knockout punch. Whatever, it's E3 - we'll be watching all week for the latest information. 
Make sure to walk all over our chests on Facebook and Twitter. (That's really a thing he does? Just walks on people?) You can always smash that like button (with your Colossal Clutch) on our YouTube channel. And finally, don't forget to leave a review on Apple Podcasts, where we never ever make weird wrestling jokes ever. 
Games discussed include Dreams, Ooblets, The Artful Escape, and "UNTITLED AVENGERS PROJECT"

Don your best raid gear, fill up that cup of mountain dew, and cancel your plans because it's time for LTRT's MMO episode. In honor of MMOrial Day, your hosts have gathered to see just how many times they can raid wipe before they finally get sick of each other. Greg tanks like no one's business. Dave definitely has that DPS covered. Giovanni goes to jail for laundering money through the gold farm economy. Colin will not stop blasting his favorite Hoobastank song into the mic. It's the true MMO experience, in podcast form!
If you're feeling up to it, you can join our guild on Facebook and Twitter. Alternatively, you can always grief us via our YouTube channel. And finally, don't forget to leave a review on Apple Podcasts, where we definitely, 100% do not and never will use that platform to sell obscene amounts of gold that we forced Dave to farm. Nope, never, happened.

This episode is just what you've been looking for: a hand-crafted, artisanal, small-batch podcast containing locally sourced hosts and ethically harvested jokes. Enjoy your fully personalized auditory experience as the boys cover the wide-ranging topic of "Customization" in games. Colin weighs the pros and cons of destroying the sun. Dave freeboots over 1,000 Dry Bones mods for various games. Greg sneezes and just like, doesn't even try to cover his mouth? Like he just does it uninhibited and acts like it's not even a big problem. Giovanni replaces his skeleton with iron rods. He's really the only one who does much customizing in this episode. 
Special thanks to our listener Day for suggesting this topic!

Those aching muscles. That throbbing headache. Only one thing can soothe the tension built up after a long week: the latest episode of Left Trigger Right Trigger. Take four doses of your (surprisingly chill) hosts and their bad jokes. You'll feel the pain just melt away. "Tension" is the topic at hand and your hosts are ready to help you relax with an extended bit about NPR and the velvety sound of their Tom Waits impressions. Your troubles will disappear as Giovanni, Colin, Greg, and Dave only barely discuss which video game characters are defo big time sex perverts.
Once you've finished your aural relaxation regimen, why not head over to Apple Podcasts and leave us a review? If you'd like to book a return appointment, you can do that by following us on Facebook and Twitter. Finally, you can find additional relaxation and breathing techniques on our YouTube

This is it, gumshoe! Today's topic is "Investigations" and wouldn't ya know, your hosts get all up in your business about things you wish they didn't. Greg finds that hidden blog where you once wrote Pikachu fan fiction. Giovanni gets intimate with your secret diary about the Pope. Dave quietly pockets that disturbingly erotic poem about your former professor. Colin just wants to know who fucks the fuckmen. It's a regular "Good Cop, Bad Cop, Sex Cop, and another Sex Cop" up in here. 
Once you wrap up this case, head over to  Apple Podcasts and leave us a review. If you're dying for more mystery, you can always follow our enigmatic social media profiles on Facebook and Twitter. Finally, be sure to swing by the seedy club that is our YouTube for some hot tips on the next perp you're trying to track down.

For best listening, please begin this podcast at 4:09:40 local time.
This is it - what remains of all human life. After the events in Antarctica brought about catastrophic climate change, we pinned all our hopes on the work being done at the GeoFront. Mankind survives because it has the will to do so - this is also the nature of Power, the topic of this episode. During this talk, Greg refuses to get back in his mech. Colin embraces the forbidden union of Adam and Lilith. Giovanni reverts to primordial soup. Dave awakes on a beach only to comment, "how disgusting." All this, and your hosts still manage to talk about Gex for like 20 minutes. 
If you're too afraid, you can always leave. But why not stop by Apple Podcasts and give us a review before you do. If you'd like to attack our egos directly just like Arael, you can do so on our Facebook and Twitter. Finally, if you'd like to explore the reality in which we are all one, you can check out our videos on YouTube.
Games discussed include The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Super Mario Bros. 3, Monster Hunter: World, and Metroid II: Return of Samus

UPDATE: Thank you everyone for watching and supporting our 24-Hour Anniversary Stream. You raised over $1,100 dollars for Child's Play! You're amazing! Thank you so much, and make sure to check our YouTube for stream highlights coming soon. With that, on to the show!
Hey y'all, welcome to the first episode of Guy Fieri's American Video Game Dumpster. I'm your host, Guy Fieri, and I'm here to tell all you little shits that I better not see you on Xbox Live or my good friend Travis and I will serve you your own ass (with a side of Donkey Sauce). In this episode, I'm rudely interrupted by some real assholes who want to talk about the one-year anniversary of their garbage show that I've barely even been on. These losers talk about "being friends," "growing as people," and other absolute trash that no one wants to hear. Really, the only thing that interested me was that one game at the end that gave me some really good ideas for new recipes. 
Anyway, my boy T says to remind you to head over to Apple Podcasts and rate this show. Also, you cretins can find my new recipes on Facebook and Twitter. And I guess you can see on-demand videos of my new series on YouTube.
I'm Guy Fieri- See You All In Hell!
Games discussed include Battlefield Hardline, Destiny, Dance Dance Revolution, and Encyclopedia Fuckme and the Case of the Vanishing Entree

Quick and important announcement: LTRT is turning one year old! In celebration of getting away with this aural crime for a full year, we will be doing a 24-hour livestream to raise money for Child's Play on February 24th! We'll be live at from 10 a.m. 2/24 to 10 a.m. 2/25 (that's Eastern time, btw.) Give a few dollars and spend part of your weekend with us as we become increasingly delirious and strange. It's for the kids!
With that, we hope you enjoy our very romantic Valentine's Day episode about that lusty topic, "Education." Dave tells us about his special pajamas. Giovanni hangs out with a green pervert. Greg plays out a "convenient snowstorm" experience. Colin... talks about gerrymandering. 
Tune in next episode to find out what happens to Travis!
If you have a moment, we'd really appreciate your reviews on Apple Podcasts. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest updates on our 24-hour charity livestream.  And be sure to stop by our YouTube channel to see all the shenanigans we get up to over there.
