As with all podcasting,we tried to find our voice early on. What kind of format will we have? What topics should we discuss? How heavily should we drink? In this excerpt of an unreleased episode, you will hear none of those questions answered in anyway whatsoever. We do discuss Star Wars but not in any significant or meaningful way nor do we link it to gaming, You will probably hear very quickly why we never released the full episode. Even with all that said, it does have some...
