“Seriously, spiral-cut honey glazed? Best.”

Welcome to another crowded podcast episode on this, the ONLY website on the Internet!

Brandon, Liz, Tom, Josh, Zack and Harrison have survived another annual Summer convention gauntlet and are super ready to waste their lives watching TV instead, starting with The Muppets, Moonbeam City, Rick and Morty and Star Wars: Rebels. Then, after the break, we discuss Konami’s all-but-confirmed departure from the video game industry, Metal Gear Solid V and Super Mario Maker. Plus: some rather important listener emails. (No, for real this time.)
