Episode 74: Geographical Castration

– We had a good episode and one that showed that the show can go on without Sparkstalker…if only for a little while.  But Spark does join us and we have a grand old time.  We talked about Mattrick leaving a sinking ship for one that hit an iceberg.  Where exactly AsphaltRanger wants Randy Pitchford to go. What we really think of the Ouya.  And why we love Major Nelson.
