The Co-Optional Podcast (formerly known as The Game Station Podcast) is a video game podcast created and hosted by YouTube critic John 'TotalBiscuit' Bain. The Podcast is Hosted by TotalBiscuit, Jesse Cox, and Brooke 'Dodger' Lawson. On occasions when a guest is unavailable or a host is away Eric 'WoWCrendor' Hraab is called in to fill in, often called the "Fifth Beatle" by Jesses Cox

Originally uploaded to YouTube on the 22nd of January 2012 under the name The Game Station Podcast, The podcast grew in terms of popularity, and when The Game Station network changed to Polaris the podcast followed and changed into The Co-Optional Podcast with the first episode being uploaded on the 26th of July.

Format

The show starts with the main host,TotalBiscuit, introducing his side hosts and that episode's guest and then (one at a time) everyone talks about what games they have been playing since the last episode of the podcast. They then go to their first break and afterwards talk about that week's news or that week's releases if the news has been very slow. They then take their last break and talk about that week's release if they haven't done so already and afterwards talk about what videos are going to be uploaded to their channels (varies if they guest isn't on Youtube) and then they say their goodbyes.
