Episode #50: We have not come this far to simply give in now!

Shockingly it seems that when it comes to Christmas time I get very good at camera dodging - this is the best I have of myself in Christmas mode

Happy Christmas one and all!

Ok with that out of the way its time for an admission – I have a problem! No, it’s not the drinking, I am more than happy with the state of affairs in that area.

It’s my obsessive need to release a podcast every week without fail. Even this week where gow was otherwise engadged and I was in no fit state to be recording one had to be done.

Sure its only 5 minutes long and is me apologising for the lack of a real episode – but dammit it counts! Next weeks will also be a clip show – so if you have any suggestions – then let us know

However we were planning to record so all the topics we would have covered in the 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.


You can also subscribe Podcast on iTunes

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
