Couch Podtatoes Episode 52: Talking Points Four

CP4

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!

Couch Podtatoes Episode 37: Talking Points Three

CP4

This week we’re doing a rehash of an old idea. You’ll probably recognize the title, as we’ve had two other episodes that were also called “Talking Points.” Basically I just rounded up some various news stories, and we briefly talk about each before moving onto the next. With some recent conventions and other big studio closures, we have plenty to cover. That’s really all there is to it, so listen in and enjoy!

Couch Podtatoes Episode 18: Talking Points The Sequel

CP4

We’re back, and it’s episode number 18. This time around I decided to be a little lazy and throw together the sequel to our show “Talking Points” from a couple of months back. Rather than do the typical format show, we just do a little cross promotion for TGEN, recap the goings-on with Bragtoberfest, and then dive into a varied discussion about a number of different articles, all of which you can see below in the show notes. We also had a fellow member of TGEN join us in the candid discussion, Roger Edwards of Contains Moderate Peril! It was a lot of fun getting different opinions on all of the different talking points, and we hope you enjoy!
