I implore you to...

Show Me Your News is a gaming podcast started in July of 2007 by Peter Spezia, also known as Youko.

Originally a weekly weekend podcast recapping the biggest news in anticipation of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the show has since branched out into a general gaming scene. In the earliest episodes, the show consisted of Youko alone in the "Rundown", but eventually he added a conversational segment called the Roundtable with special bi-weekly guest, SamuraiPanda. Due to overwhelming popular response, the Rundown was dropped completely, the the Roundtable became the main focus of the show.

After Brawl's release, the show turned to a monthly format. Each episode would have Youko and SamuraiPanda note  with a Guest of the Week, such as the likes of Egoraptor, Gimpyfish62, LittleKuriboh, Megami33, and some other notable figures.


The show can be found at its website. There's also a Twitter page and a YouTube page.
