* Posting youtube videos (type: [ yt ]videonumber[/ yt ] e.g [ yt ]vWdsdAdss[ /yt ] )
* DDDDDD’s are back (refresh your cache for them to come back)

I think that’s it. I’ll update with anything I’ve forgotten.

If you can think of any tweaks/features, please let me know and I’ll try and work them in :)

Editing. ¬†It’s a bitch. ¬†The process seems to be taking longer and longer each week, store and between two podcasts, prescription classes, and trying to steal money from children, my free time is next to nothing. ¬†So this week’s show is a bit late. ¬†You can cry about it with the other babies in the forums, or apply for a the notorious position of BDPE audio editor. ¬†Just check out this thread to apply.

Also on this week’s show, when free speech gets too real, the¬†responsibility¬†to the sequel, and we throw out all collective human knowledge just¬†because¬†we can’t see¬†empirical¬†evidence of it.

If you’d like to see Beadle’s Birthday card, here’s the link. ¬†But be warned, it is beyond unsafe for work, or anywhere for that matter. ¬†And again, thanks to Super Derp for hooking us up with the¬†BDPE Soundboard, check it out on the forums.

We recount some of our favorite classic games you may want to revisit during these slower summer months, give you some good janks on how to wisely spend those recession dollars, and tell you the things to avoid (good god why did I buy Too Human? I knew that shit would suck and I bought it anyway).

You’ll laugh, you’ll stop laughing and nod your head in agreement, and then you’ll laugh again at this quad-annual BEST DAMN PODCAST EVER.
