This week, we talk about Nintendo Direct! Mostly, I think. I'll be honest, I wasn't there for the start of the episode and I haven't had time to watch it. They could've spoken about absolutely anything, which would be on brand. Idk, maybe this episode is about the definition of the word 'alacrity' and John Williams. Your guess is as good as mine.

This week, Austin and Mike discuss Game Awards until Alanah joins and suddenly it becomes about homelessness? Even I didn't see that one coming, and I am aforementioned "Alanah".
