Gamers In Beta Podcast 200: Radioactive Meat Flaps

Direct Download to Episode 200

Well, we made it to 200. I guess that’s something, right? But seriously, a sincere thanks to all who’ve contributed to the show over the last (almost-ish) 4 years. All the various co-hosts, guests, listeners, contributors, etc., it has been my pleasure to steer this ship for this many episodes. I look forward to delivering you more in the future, as we continue to grow this community of friends as well. Thanks for taking the time each week to hear what some simpletons like us have to say. I didn’t expect it to last this long and I didn’t expect so many of you to care either. You humble me, while continuously stoking the flames of creativity.

Featured stuff this week: Community Question of the Week, GiB Trivia Show, and Voice mails.
