In 2011, I had a vision to create a website to satisfy the need for good, original and interesting gaming news. Vamers was born from that desire. Over time, the needs of our audience changed, and thus our scope broadened to encompass everything related to a geek lifestyle. From music, movies and games, through to food, clothing, toys, collectibles and so much more. I believe Vamers has served its audience well over the last decade (Google analytics thinks so too), but there is always room for growth and expansion. Therefore I am excited to announce GETL Podcast! A brand new venture for myself, Edward and the Vamers brand.

GETL (pronounced Get-All) is an acronym for Gaming, Entertainment, Technology and Lifestyle. It is a vocal space where you, our dear readers, can tune in and listen to myself and Edward talk about pretty much anything related to the all encompassing geekosphere. Given the many facets of the industry we speak about, the podcast would be described as ‘variety’ in nature. Truthfully, we have been skirting around creating a podcast for quite some time. However, our decision to actually do it occurred when a dear friend overheard myself and Edward during our morning Vamers strategy sessions – which almost always deviate from the business needs at hand to discuss the most random and incredulous geek topics. Thus GETL was born.

We would adore for you to join us, and we encourage you to reach out to us on social media with any questions or topics you would like us to talk about.

In terms of our podcast schedule, and barring any technical hurdles, Edward and I record and publish a new episode weekly. We are also syndicated on all podcast platforms [simply search for GETL]: Apple, Google, Spotify, Amazon, and even YouTube.
