Hello the Internet! Welcome to the official show page for 80-Bit Podsmash. We are a weekly podcast smashing conversations about video games with topics that you care about. Please take time to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter with the links below. We are also on reddit at /r/80bitpodsmash; and Instagram, @80bitpodsmash.

We generally have a weekly streaming schedule.

Our schedule consisted of two weekly streams - a half hour video game news show, and a video game live stream of a game we're digging.

However, due to life circumstances for both Penguin and Termite, we are putting that on hiatus until Dec 2021. Be sure to subscribe and follow along, so when we come back, you'll be ready
