The Experience Points Podcast
A weekly video game podcast from the co-writers of

This week, we take a mid-week breather from all the E3 madness to talk about a subject that's actually one of the bigger features of both Microsoft and Sony's new consoles: screencasting.  What once started out as "Let's Plays" on obscure corners of the internet have now become regular events for a growing multitude of players.  Inspired by Kris Ligman's article on the origin, evolution, and struggles of the Let's Play scene, we discuss everything from intellectual property to editing techniques.  We're still pretty new to this entire scene, so we're interested to read your thoughts in the comments!
