There are tons of gaming enthusiast podcasts out in the wild, but almost none of the top-tier podcasts are made specifically for Nintendo fans. That's where we come in! We here at Gamnesia are bringing you a new episode of "Nintendo Week," a podcast made for Nintendo fans by Nintendo fans.
Join Alex, Ben, and Colin as we discuss news from the past week, including tons of new Pokémon, the end of Splatoon's Splatfests, some corporate shakeups, and the mobile sensation sweeping the nation, Pokémon GO. Afterwards we have a brief discussion about the future of the show, so be sure to stay tuned.
You can check out the episode below—or if you'd like to save it to listen later, you can check the latest episode out on iTunes, available now.
Nintendo Week is currently available in full on iTunes, Podbean, and right here at Gamnesia—and tons of videos from the show are available on YouTube where it's easy to find them based on your favorite subjects... So between it all, you have plenty of ways to access one of the best places for information on all things Nintendo. You can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes for the earliest possible access to new episodes, or subscribe to our channel on YouTube for totally neato visuals. But if you'd rather not subscribe, you can still find all of our Nintendo Week content right here at Gamnesia.
Note: We've reached file capacity for SoundCloud uploads, so for the time being we're exploring other options. In the meantime, we're still available on tons of great platforms!
If you'd like to give us feedback, please email me at [email protected], and we'll do our best to improve our show! We want to give you guys the best podcast we can, so please don't be afraid to leave suggestions. And if you have questions about Nintendo that you'd like some insight on, please send those in as well! When we have a good number of fan questions, we'll be answering them in one big block, so we'd love to hear some of your thoughts.
