Grab your Golden Joystick and give it a waggle, it's time to travel back to the 1990s and remember the underrated Channel 4 TV show, Gamesmaster.

From Dominik Diamond's various incarnations, his brief Hollywood replacement and how Mario 64 brought down one of the show's cult heroes, we embrace our 'dweeb' 12-year-old selves by delving into the classic TV series.

We also discuss:

  • The utter basics of Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Patrick Moore's many talents
  • How Gamesmaster was the precursor to YouTube, eSports and Twitch
  • The fine art of knob gags
  • The popstar whose proudest moment was winning a Golden Joystick
  • The surprisingly sad ending
  • Much more!

Clips used:

  • Gamesmaster (Channel 4)
  • Gamesmaster 2021 (E4/YouTube)

About the Podcast

Two Geeks Two Beers
Nerdy obsessions. Drunken ramblings. A nostalgia podcast about TV, film and video games.
Tom and Morgan are two mates who love talking nonsense about pop culture, while also enjoying a beer. We've taken our drunken ramblings from the pub to the studio to teach each other about all kinds of films, TV shows, video games and more. From '80s cartoons to '90s kids shows, action film franchises to cult games, we'll chat about anything remotely geek-related, often with plenty of confusion, bickering and fond nostalgia.
