What people are saying…

“Great in depth history of different ARGs. If you don’t care about ARGs or crazy puzzles, the weird fun stories told by them are still worth the listen. The hosts do great research and are very entertaining.”


“i have just discovered the fascinating history of ARGs, and suddenly this engaging and in-depth podcast exploring the inner workings of ARGs appears? is it just too coincidental to be true? or is it just an enjoyable deep dive? i’m cool either way.


“This was my first in depth exposure to the world of ARGs. Andrew and Marn have a great connection. Marn’s extensive knowledge of Augmented Reality Games is well complimented by Andrew’s informative questions and funny commentary create a compelling podcast. The best endorsement I can give to the ARGonauts Podcast is that after listening I can not wait to experience my ARG!
