Episode#25: The wonders of technology

Not sure which is me and which is Gow in this picture, but this is still funny

Well for reasons beyond our control this week Gow could not be on site to record this weeks podcast.

However we were not about to let that stop us completing an unbroken run of nearly 6 months, So god bless the wonder that is Skype!

Unfortunately after listening back to the recording , its seems that while I may have heard one thing over my headphones, the system was recording something much louder.

There are times when Gow sounds like one of those roving reporters you see on the 24hr news, in some war-torn country.

Despite that audio glitch we have decided to publish anyway.

Also we’re 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 Thing.
