Episode #42: A Lonely Turret’s Serenade

If I were a Turret is be the fat bugger in the middle!

Well this is a first for the Drinky Talky Thingy podcast – A completely sober one!!

Yes you heard that right, unfortunately this week Gow was once again ill so was unable to join in with the recording. To compound things I was also on medication that meant he was not allowed to drink. I will let you guess how happy I was about that!

However as always the show must go on, My OCD will not allow a week to be missed. Not until we take our winter break anyway. At least I managed to get most of this weeks news covered for you.

Anyway on to the podcast and 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
