Drinky Talky Thing 2011 #1

Seems the Joker was more than ready for the launch of the Nintendo 3DS

Well as I said last week, one of my aims for this year was to get the podcast back up and rolling again. It was actually supposed to be last week that it started again as well, but unfortunately I got ill enough to call it off.

But last night we got things back in order and have finally started recording again. This will now be a weekly podcast, for that reason we are also going to start the numbering again.

So here you are, Episode #1 of The Drinky Talky Thing 2011
