Checkpoint Flashback: Tripod

Posted on May 7, 2017

Listen to the show!

Checkpoint Flashback is a new podcast, where we go back in time to bring you some wonderful content from yester-year! With three years of radio under our belt, we hope that new listeners enjoy these snippets of the show in its earlier days. First up… remember that time that Australian comedy stars Tripod joined us in studio to sing and nerd out with us? “This week we are super lucky to be joined by the awesome boys from TRIPOD! Scod, Yon and Gatesy come into the studio and spend the entire show with Luke and Kev, discussing their consistent love of video games throughout their careers and talking all about their upcoming collaboration with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra: ‘This Gaming Life’. We talk about how the show came to be, the process in working with someone as talented as Austin Wintory (award winning composer from Journey and The Banner Saga), and what it’s like to translate your passion into an orchestral comedy spectacular! The boys even sing a couple of their songs acoustically for us (and assure everybody that the songs will sound even MORE amazing with the orchestra behind them!).”
