The Nick Gemas Podcast

The Nick Gemas PodcastThe Nick Gemas Podcast is produced in high-definition audio and is available in the uncompressed “wav” file format (the original audio file produced in the studio). However, there is also a high definition “flac” version available, which uses a smaller file size.

Actually, scratch that.

My original plan was to host my podcast directly here on this site, but doing so was harder than I thought. So, I’ve decided to partner with Buzzsprout. You can access The Nick Gemas Podcast by using the link below.
