Time to make us one of your favorites again

Two times a year (January and July), Podcastpickle.com recycles their vote system so everyone starts with zero. I'd like to thank those of you who made us a top 25 show on Podcastpickle.com in the past few months and I ask that you put us back on your favorites list. Doing that is very easy, just click the graphic below and add us to your favorites list. It's so easy your friends can do it too ;). If that doesn't work, we're on Pickle Page 1050 That's it, I won't bug you for votes again till July.

I'm falling in love with.....RE 4


Something I've never discussed on the show is my long time secret love....Resident Evil. Oh how those video games have sucked up so much of my time. I'm notoriously cheap when it comes to video games and hardly ever pay full price when a game comes out but I will pay whatever the man behind the counter wants to play Resident Evil. I got Resident Evil 4 for Christmas and holy crap that game is awesome. So for those of you who enjoy video games, you may want to check out this game. Especially you Len!

Just a reminder...

We're taking this week off to celebrate the holidays and spend time with Jenny's parents. We'll be back next week and for those of you who love Jenny's parents being on the holiday show, you're gonna love the next show. Rumor has it they play a round of The Toughest Game in Podcasting. So while we're off for the week, why not check out some old episodes and catch up with what you've been missing.

Sorry folks, we're going to have to delay our show by a day because Aaron is down with a muscle spasm. It happened Wednesday night and though he's feeling better today, he's still not 100%. We'll be back to do our regular show on Friday night so hang on for another day. Thank you for your understanding.

New guest map

Though I liked the old map, I have to admit I like the Frappr map so much more. But there's a downside, I need new pins and for that I apologize. It takes just a second but I ask that you add yourself to the map and say hi. Especially if you are new to the show, let us know where you're checking out the show.

Check out our Frappr!
