A Gaming Podcast About Nothing, Episode 19 - I'm Chippin' In

Dave and Nate's critically acclaimed podcast is back due to overwhelming public demand. In this episode, the discussion takes in: the Twilight Saga (which Dave would like to place on record that he has not read and only half-seen), the World of Darkness games, Reality Bites (yes, really), current and future projects, Batman vs Superman, the advantages of print over PDF, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Dragonlance, Johnny Silverhand, Kickstarters and their problems.... And much else besides. It's an hour and eighteen minutes long.
