So Doone was supposed to be on the show this week but had to bow out because of a sick broodling. He promised to be on again next week, but we won’t hold our breath 😉 As a result we had to pull a random topic out of our asses and decided to talk about violence in our media. We managed to also talk about a bunch of games and some anime, plenty of other parts of social and traditional media and had a blast doing so. I think it turned out pretty good for given very little preparation time. I guess doing this for so long has its advantages!
On a side note, it’s been quite a while since we’ve had a guest on the show outside of Doone, so we’d like to put out an open call for anyone interested to come be a guest and talk about random stuff with us! If you’re interested your best bet would be to hit one of us up on Twitter, and that info can be found at the bottom of this post. Anyway, enjoy the show.
