Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #142: Far Too amused by the Numbat Tongue

This is a Numbat, isn't it the greatest thing ever
This is a Numbat, isn’t it the greatest thing ever

Reddit has a lot to answer for, but occasionally it pops up to show us a gem like this guy.

It is a Numbat and we are considering making it the site mascot.

In other news it is now christmas, so as always there will be a short gap in recording till the new year as we do the family thing.

Before we go though we recorded one last episode for the year and wrap up a few last stories such as the ongoing clusterfuck that is the YouTube Content ID issues, the release of the Steam OS, Rovio losing the plot and EA in trouble with the courts again.

Anyway all that and much more in this episode of the Drinky Talky Thingy.
