Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #122: What’s going on with 8BitAlliance?

Don't have a funny picture for this week so lets try a cute one
Don’t have a funny picture for this week so lets try a cute one

With Gow unable to join this week due to having some work to do before Fiona getting back from a holiday,  I took the opportunity to take a break myself as well.

However I couldn’t quite bring myself to do it, my OCD kicked in about the fact that I was about to miss a week.

However I also have been meaning for weeks to do a catch up on what’s going on with the Site, Podcast & YouTube, so took the opportunity to do a short podcast on that stuff.

For those who had trouble with iTunes or an android device you can now download the podcast from Stitcher http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/8bit-alliance/the-drinky-talky-thingy?refid=stpr or any of the following sources


And if you want to know what we would have covered if this had been a normal podcast, all of the links are after the Jump as usual.


You can also subscribe Podcast on iTunes

We also welcome your contact about anything you want to talk to us about – From suggestions for stories to recommendations for mid podcast songs, Hell you can even just hurl insults at us if you so wish. Below is a list of the ways you can contact us. Send us a sound clip and we will even bung it in the show.

You can even if you so wish buy us gifts of beers and sweeties via our Amazon wishlist, doing so will make you the sponsor of that show and as a result we will say almost anything you ask us to during the show. Amazon.co.uk: Drinky Talky Thing
