The Arcade is a weekly podcast that informs and entertains listeners by recapping the big news of the week from the world of video games, and just about anything else that tickles the fancy of its hosts, Mike “The Legend” Zuke and Dennis Mott.
Mike originally conceived of The Arcade in January 2006. His original vision was to do a show in the vein of a sports-talk radio program, but for video games instead of sports. In little time, he found a local station manager who was interested in his idea. Shortly after pitching it, The Arcade made its debut on February 10th, 2006, airing on KICK-FM in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Dennis joined the show as a permanent co-host just a few weeks later, in April 2006.
The Arcade remained a staple on the KICK-FM schedule for over 6.5 years, until the station went off the air in the summer of 2012. Upon the station’s demise, The Arcade found a new home in the world of podcasting. No longer encumbered by time constraints, Mike and Dennis have enjoyed a level of freedom with podcasting that wasn’t previously afforded to them on terrestrial radio.
