Episode #18: Sometimes Gow doesn’t understand

This was exactly the look Gow gave me when I tried to explain the previous podcast title

Well for weeks now I have said that I should write these intros as soon as were done recording.

Well for once I have managed it, which is good as I really would have forgotten about the lemur.

This podcast was originally going to be titled ‘Double the Random’ as this week Gow had the same random word suggested twice.

However while we were listening to the break song, I set that and he stared at me like a confused lemur.

Fortunately you guys don’t have to be confused as everything we talked about is linked below.

Another regular feature got a revamp this week as well – the mid podcast songs. From here on in they will always be suggestions from listeners.

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.
