Before anyone asks, no I don't know why the player isn't showing up like it normally does. But if you click on the link, it will take you to the episode page where you can listen. I'll look into it in the morning because...I am very tired. This past week has been a hell of a year.

Russ, Peter and Jessica keep it light and funny in the podcast but from their voices, it seems the recent nonsense hit them where it hurt.

Just want to say to them: draw stength from the community and thanks for all your efforts to improve the game and keep us updated. It's really appreciated!

We laugh to keep from spending the rest of the month in a blanket burrito surrounded by empty ice cream tubs and/or booze bottles (depending on vice).
