Episode #24: Sonic’s Birthday Episode

Jebus, Yet another thing to make me feel old
Jebus, Yet another thing to make me feel old

Thank lord for that, I didnt have to do two weeks ruuning on my own. Gow managed to drag himself away from his work to podcast this week.

No that it means this episode makes any more sense than any of the others, god I think we went of topic even more than usual this week.

However between our random ramblings about things Gow missed and the possible future of gaming we managed to get some news in and even a song.

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.

  1. Hi Guys, Great podcast, but I was shocked to hear my song on your show, thank you so much!

    Best Regards,


    • Not a problem, we always aim to showcase indie talent where we can. It is a good track and was a good change of pace to some of the ones we have used in previous weeks for our interval track
