If you have a passing interest in mobile games, you're likely playing Clash Royale. Like, right now. Gah, you just let that Hog Rider smash your tower because you were too busy reading this! Amateur.

Anyway, why not supplement that insane interest in Clash Royale in a manner that's more palatable while playing. Or, in other words, listen to Royal Mumble, our brand new podcast that's dedicated to your favourite new toilet game instead.

Royal Mumble is brought to you by the most despicable cast of characters Pocket Gamer and 148Apps has to offer. That's Glen Fox, Editor of 148Apps, and Alex Rennie, one of those annoying salesmen who pester you with constant calls and email follow-ups.

He does have an amusing Mancunian accent that's reminiscent of Karl Pilkington though. Worth tuning in for that alone.
