Episode 40: Last Minute Co-Host

This is what life with the DrunkenGamer can do to your mind

This week unfortunately was one of those rare weeks where Gow could not make it. I personally think he went to the fair, but who can blame him toffee apples are quite the attraction.

However the podcast must go on, I really think that the compulsion to get an episode out each week is starting to border on the obsessive. Anyway I was out of luck arranging a co-host this week, Alec was working nights & Craig had previous commitments, So I set to the task of doing a solo podcast.

I even managed to get to the release date round up before realising I had an instant co-host sat less than 20 feet away. After weeks as only being the occasional background noise I managed to get Mrs DrunkenGamer (Jo) to sit close enough to the mic to be heard. She then deliberately tried to be silly but that was exactly I was expecting.

Anyway as always links to almost all the topics covered in tonight’s show are available after the jump.

Also as always we are still taking suggestions for the mid podcast songs. So if you have a suggestion for song to be included in the podcast then put it in the comments of this post or send them too @DrunkenGamer or @D_Gow . They will be put on the short-list and you will be mentioned in the podcast itself when played

Anyway enjoy this episode of the Drinky Talky Thingy.

Also for while now listeners have been asking for a way to buy us a beer and help us get drunk for their amusement, well now we have found a way. We have set up an Amazon wish list full of beer and sugary things that you can send to us (trust us were just as funny hyper as drunk). Anyone that does so can send any message with their beer and we will say it in the show. Amazon.co.uk: Drinky Talky Thing
