Couch Podtatoes Episode 18: Talking Points The Sequel

CP4

We’re back, and it’s episode number 18. This time around I decided to be a little lazy and throw together the sequel to our show “Talking Points” from a couple of months back. Rather than do the typical format show, we just do a little cross promotion for TGEN, recap the goings-on with Bragtoberfest, and then dive into a varied discussion about a number of different articles, all of which you can see below in the show notes. We also had a fellow member of TGEN join us in the candid discussion, Roger Edwards of Contains Moderate Peril! It was a lot of fun getting different opinions on all of the different talking points, and we hope you enjoy!
