Episode 63 - Potato Detour

It’s the last cast of the year, and over the Christmas break Iain McAllister is rebuilding the HQ. Thankfully the studio isn’t affected and the team gather for one last time in 2020 to cover companies going bankrupt, Gencon announcing new dates, Alexa grabbing more games and the return of RPG corner.
