This week I go it alone, as time conflicts and mixups happen, even when you’ve been doing this podcast thing for this long! As the 4th of July rapidly approaches I decided to push this episode out solo so that I could enjoy the holiday with friends. It’s another talking points episode, so I’ve got some articles from the gaming sphere that I found interesting enough to talk about and share with you. If the audio sounds a little funky it’s because I ended up having a fan on in the background and editing that shit out makes everything sound tinny. My bad. But I wasn’t about to re-record the whole thing again! I encourage you to check out the links below so you can get some extra information on the things I ramble on about!
