Kyle and Matthew sit down for another round of listener questions. Now... I know what you're thinking: “Hey weren't Matthew and Kyle supposed to do this episode IN PERSON!? What kind of liars are you jerk faces?” And that is a reasonable question phrased very fairly. We have a reason. It's pretty funny. Go give the ep a listen. You might have a chuckle.

This is FAR from the last episode we will do on this topic so fret not that we didn't talk about the Chrono Trigger score. We'll get there one day. In the mean time, this ep has a lot of fun tangents including Grant chatting a bit about his band Sad Park and their recent signing to Lauren Records.   Announcement!
