We’re doing a Lord’s work. (Not THE Lord…)

The show is back after an unexpected (ahem) week off! In the first half, Brandon, Harrison and Josh discuss what they’ve been playing lately (including more Persona 4 Golden and Dust: An Elysian Tail), and discover how long it takes to finally warm up to Deep Space Nine. Then, after the break, Heidi joins us for a new segment in which some incredibly sweet ice wine is enjoyed during a session of mandatory positivity. Then, to wrap things up, we tackle a heap of listener emails and read not one, not two, but three JKP fan fics.
