Drinky Talky Thing 2011 #10

Spot the Batman, win a prize!

I have to admit that this is absolutely the last thing I expected to be posting this week was this – Welcome to the 10th Episode of the Drinking Talky Thing!!

I knew it would happen but it has only been 10 weeks since we decided to restart the podcast & the episode count at the same time.

But shockingly we have managed to keep recording for 10 weeks and I am now galvanised to continue – we made double figures there is no way this will be anything less that weekly from here on in (even if Gow has to record it solo at some point)

Well without further stalling for layout reasons here is the latest episode of the podcast
