Holy Hiatus, Batman!

Brett & Robb usher in the first episode of 2019 without Jeremy, as he is in the process of moving into his new house. Fear not though, Jeremy will return and we brought the Blue Flame Merchant in tow so everything will be alright!

During our hiatus, we took a long, hard look at the show and decided to make some adjustments to how we do things. On the episode we go into our thought process and what those changes are going to be. This is a work in progress and will slowly evolve over the coming weeks & months, but we are very excited to carve out our own little niche within the gaming podcast world and bring more of our unique perspectives, interests & strengths to the show.
