The Co-Optional Podcast, formerly known as the TGS Podcast, is a gaming podcast hosted by TotalBiscuitJesse Cox and Dodger.

The name change came about with the change of name of The Game Station to Polaris, not due to copyright issues with Gamestation, a line of gaming shops in the UK


The show starts with the main host, TotalBiscuit, introducing everyone and then everyone talks about what games they have been playing that week. They then go to their first break and talk about that week's news after the break. They then take another break and go onto the host's topics afterwards. Then, they each talk about what videos are coming up and then proceed to tell the listeners what their channels are and they then say their goodbyes. If TotalBiscuit is not availlable, Dodger or Jesse Cox take's over as the main host.

  • The show usually lasts from around 2 hours and 20 minutes to 3 hours and 15 minutes.
  • The shortest Podcast episode was episode 49 which was around 50 minutes because it was the PAX Est TGS Panel and they were only allowed an hour of their panel. It was also the first time that Criken showed his face in public.
  • The Longest episode was episode 80 which last 3 hours and 39 Minutes with Simon's episode (6) close behind with 3 Hours and 30 minutes.
  • Episode 59 has the only guest to be kicked off the show was Justin of Silvermania who was kicked off due to him not contributing towards the on-going discussions (of videogames) and his roommate insulting the hosts numerous times . He got booted from the podcast after his roommate called TotalBiscuit an a**hole. The replacement cat picture (This cat instead) was a much better guest. This Podcast ends with the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) Fire Marshals doing fire alarm check at Jesse's home. First part here
  • Simon, Martyn, DaveChaos, Sips and Strippin have all been on the show.
  • From episode 63 onwards, the show was renamed the Co-Optional Podcast.
  • After the show was renamed to the Co-Optional podcast, TB stopped caring about the guests being from the Polaris network, as mentioned on episode 69 when NorthernLion (who is part of the Machinma network) was on the show.
  • 2 gifs have appeared to fill the guest space on two different occasions, Maru the Cat apperaed on episode 5 and Baker Cat appeared on episode 65.
  • Every other episode that hasn't had any guest has had a picture of Teemo, one of Totalbiscuit's chinchillas or Maya, his dog.
  • Episode 68 was the Co-Optional podcast panel at PAX Prime so there was no guest.
  • On the 14th episode of The TGS Podcast, Dodger ate a pack of Jaffa Cakes with the best before date being 1272, whether this was just a mis-print or it was actually from the medieval age, this goes down as one of the most memorable moments in the podcast's history.

  • Jesse is currently the only host that has been present every episode.
  • The Co-Optional Podcast is live every Tuesday at 3 PM EST / 12PM PST / 8pm GMT /¸9pm CET on Totalbiscuit's Twitch channel : (check his page for times and guest) If TotalBiscuit is unavailable , check Polaris's, Jesse's and/or Dodger's Twitter for info.
