Episode 10 - Intellectual Dysentery

Welcome to Brainwaves a fortnightly podcast bringing you the best in Tabletop Gaming News. On this Episode Jamie and Sam run riot as the boss is away! Covering big mergers, sad departures and a bunch of IP related news and discussion. During their quiet time they snuggle down in the comforting embrace of RPG corner. Don't worry Iain will be back soon to sort everything out, assuming he hasn't died on the Oregon Trail.
