Who We Are

Welcome to the Character Unlock Podcast.

Starting life in September 2016 as a video games focussed offshoot of The Failed Critics Podcast; the Character Unlock Podcast grew into its own entity over the summer of 2017.

A fortnightly podcast featuring a couple of old mates; and sometimes their mates; putting the video gaming world to rights a couple of hours at a time.  Sharing stories of games they’d played, news they’d read and sharing a life story or two along the way, hosts John Miller and Andrew Brooker are never short of a few words to bring to the podcast every couple of weeks.

Not a pair to shy away from a challenge, they’ve recorded two years worth of episodes together. Ranging from three hour love-ins over Mass Effect; a five hour history of the Call of Duty franchise; a six man recording in a busy restaurant for EGX in Birmingham and extensive coverage of E3 2017.  The lads have done a bit of everything and look forward to doing it again every fortnight.

Andrew Brooker

Favourite Games: Killzone 2; Deus Ex: Human Revolution; The Saints Row Franchise; Burnout Paradise.

A long-time hobby writer and podcaster, Brooker attributes all of his podcast knowledge and confidence to years with Failed Critics.

He tries to play as many games as possible while balancing watching as many films as possible, editing the CU podcast and trying desperately not to ignore his family. A tricky balancing act, for sure.
