Heads up gang, there are some big changes coming to show. First and foremost, we are moving to a bi-weekly format for the foreseeable future. We’re also cutting down the show length to an hour so we can record and edit easier; not to mention make it easier to listen to! Optimusgene will explain everything during the show. We also discuss the Steam Box, Topher Grace’s version of a Star Wars prequel movie and the best toys ever (or at least our favorites).
