The Back Button Podcast was started in January of 2015 with the idea in mind that people want to have a gaming podcast that is different than only the news and hype. We are two friends from the south Chicago suburbs with a deep interest in gaming and the industry. Your hosts, Sam Langbartels and Josh Ortiz, like to spend their time playing games, watching movies and hanging out at a few of the local diners in their area talking about video games and the philosophical mysteries of life. All in all Its nothing to write home about.
