Episode #19: Frozen Beer & Miniature Whales

Does this image really need a caption?

Moving house is a royal pain in the ass!

Not only does it require far more physical effort than I like to use in an entire year, you can never find stuff after you move .

Another problem is that it always takes so much longer than you would expect, which is why my PC is still packed away under a stack of boxes that was once my desk….I think.

Not wanting to skip a weeks podcast, we instead set ourselves up at Gow’s place.

However it did mean that once again this intro in not written right after recording, however I have listened to part of it and have to say I seem a little more drunk than normal.

Anyway that should be enough stalling, feel free to leave your suggestions for the podcast in the comments.

We’re also 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.
