Episode 44 - Robot Club!

Iain Chantler has established a Robot Fight Club in the basement of Brainwaves HQ and who better than James Hewitt to help him get it setup. Iain McAllister is enthusiastic about the idea but James really needs to help out around the place if the club is going to stay, so he joins the Iains on the cast. This episode we cover Kickstarter unions, DTRPG categories, Hasbro Finances, Replacement policies and more. In Brainwaves we cast our eye to the new Federal Trade Commision rules on influencers and discuss the relationship between the press and publishers.
