In "So Many Bits", Bill Nielsen chats with game developers across the world in order to find out more about their craft. They talk about the technical and business side of the gaming business, but have a bit of fun along the way. Each episode also features Bill and a friend reviewing different scenes about video games from TV and film during their "Screenwatching", along with periodic check-ins on games we're playing.
