Episode 39: Gaming Rites of Passage, or Orange Juice Carton to the Head

Gaming luminaries Chris Pramas and Sean Patrick Fannon join us to talk about those shared experiences all gamers have.

Or that first time you realized you were speaking a foreign language? We’re talking about all those old memories and those milestones that new gamers have to look forward to.
