Our penultimate Revival 2017 audio podcast is our much-anticipated Rare panel featuring Kev Bayliss, Chris Marlow and Sean Pile talking about their work at the legendary development house.

The panel was hosted by former Rare staffer and host of the Cane and Rinse podcast, Darren Gargette. Being such a Rare fan we knew that Darren was the perfect host to get the best from the guys and boy were we right!

This is an absolute treasure for fans of Rare’s canon of work.
