Illustrated Game Podcast

Illustrated Game Podcast

United States

The world's premier comedically endowed and occasionally politically motivated football podcast. Surrealist comedy sketches, working class profanities and musical medleys are commonplace. Apathy aplenty. Football ferociously fetishised. Hosted by Joe Devine, attended by Martin Race, Alex Stewart & James Dutton, amongst others.

Alex Stewart joins Joe Devine for a whole podcast of talking. The moral ambiguity of Jamie Vardy is discussed at length. The rest of the podcast is a long list of better things to listen to. Enjoy.

Alex Stewart returns. This is a podcast.

Season 4; Episode 18: Um  

This is a podcast.

Season 4; Episode 17: Basil  

The boys are back, and ever so sorry for the minor, unintended break. Martin joins Joe for a wonderful scout through football pod-land, including visits to the Premier League city, a bout of pretend FA Cup talk, and mention of basil & Stewart Lee. Enjoy.

Season 4; Episode 16: AT  

Andi Thomas joins host Joe Devine to run through the final weekend of European qualifications. The pair chat Wales, N.I, England and ignore Scotland (forgot). There's also a Premier League preview and a bunch of fun to be had for all.

Season 4; Episode 15: Keane  

Host Joe Devine is joined by returning champion James Dutton. The pair discuss Liverpool, in depth, and the rest of the weekend's results a bit less so. Keane feature, as do other things I've forgotten about, and there's a bit of tension at one point, so listen out for that fans of awkward silence.

Alexander Netherton joins host Joe Devine for some super serious football chat. They discuss Arsenal, and the never-ending Wenger circus, Manchester United and Fergie's lashes from obscurity, and loads of other stuff we've forgotten about but was totally good.

Season 4; Episode 12: Football

Season 4; Episode 10: Cheese  

Joe Devine is joined by Alexander Netherton to discuss some of the week's football. A shoddy internet connection cuts the pod short, so this episode is now a 'special' (meaning it's about 20 minutes long). It's all gold though, so don't you worry. We talk a bit about doping, and that's all I remember.

Season 4; Episode 9: Wealth  

Wealthiest man in the world, Alex Stewart, joins host Joe Devine for this edition of Illustrated Game podcast. There's a bit of Wayne Rooney chat, something you could barely get away with calling a 'Premier League Preview' and one-hundred-thousand tangents. Enjoy.
