Episode #47: In everything a balance is needed

Movember may have ended but the Moustache lives on
Movember may have ended but the Moustache lives on

Well it seems that we may have annoyed the podcast gods last week by having the extra host, as this week we were back to just me for the first time in quite a while.

This is because Gow’s partner Fiona has been very unwell recently, so I told him to stay at home and look after her. I’m sure we all hope she gets well soon.

One thing that has changed this week is that Movember has come to an end, however to balance that a little something new is that the Moustache grown during that month remains. I have come to like having the lip warmer and plan on keeping it for a while at least – probably just long enough to get some embarrassing pictures to terrify any kids I have with when they are teenagers 🙂

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
