Episode 78 - Cash Money

Iain has made so much money from reviewing over the years that he is off to an island, and Jamie has become a Doomsayer? Is this the end of Brainwaves? Nah, it’s just a skit. The team bore of their new lives quickly and decide to get back in the podcasting saddle for a cast featuring Iain on paid reviews, Jamie on awards, old white guys being wrong on the internet and so much more!
