Episode 105: No Lone Ranger

– In this episode, the show must go on without AsphaltRanger so Spark and Jedi actually go on without him.  We talk about getting wisdom teeth pulled, and why PleX is so great at least for some.  We also talk video games and the what is being called the Tiny Console War.
