Happy New Year!

It's happened, everyone! We've been making this podcast for a year. A whole year! (Give or take a few days, yadda yadda.) It's crazy. Looking back at older episodes, I remember discussions we had where I honestly felt like we had a pretty good handle on podcasting and where the show was going and so on, but then I look back and that was like episode eight or something. It's crazy how far we've come!

This episode brings back an old friend- Justin from Crit Academy! He was kind enough to help us ring in the new year as we go through a handful of my own discussion questions I posted to Facebook and Twitter and Reddit in 2017. We get into some fun discussion about characters, games, gods, monsters, wishes, dead celebrities, the whole gamut. So come along for the ride!

I just want to give a heartfelt thank you to all of our listeners over the past year, and more importantly, all of the contributors who have sent in questions, items, and stories for us to discuss. We wouldn't have a podcast without all of you, so thank you so much! You all are so great and we here at the podcast appreciate each and every one of you.

So have a great year. :-)

  1. Great job for publishing such a beneficial web site. Your web log isn’t only useful but it is additionally really creative too. There tend to be not many people who can certainly write not so simple posts that artistically. Continue the nice writing
