This is the first of an ongoing monthly series of team-up podcasts, covering the wide world of geek culture and combining co-hosts from three websites; GameBurst, GamerDork and Gonzo Planet. Three hosts per show, one topic per host, ten minutes per topic. For this inaugural outing we have...

James Batchelor asking “Is this the last generation of consoles?”

Alex Shaw asking “If so, is there something to be said for only buying one of them?”

And Leah Haydu with “Should consumers of media have a say in the narrative direction of that media?”

These round-table discussions are interspersed with short snippets of the previous month’s output from all three feeds.

Talk about the show on Twitter with the many hosts using the hashtag #PraxisEffect. Contact us via email at and come to the Gonzo Planet forums where there is a new Praxis Effect section. We want to hear from you about what you’d like to hear about on the show in the coming months. We’ll be back on the first day of every month.
