Episode 166 Audio Issues

Sorry about the sound quality in this week's episode. We recorded in Super Ugly's living room after our Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li commentary. It's a huge room with not much in it so our voices bounced off the walls something fierce.

We're moving into the new Savant studio week after next so the sound will be top notch from here on out...

That's right, kids, our loveable trainwreck, TGS host Grant Miller is going to bring his insane experiences and knowledge into your homes with the 'Ask Grant' column. Think of it as an advice line for scumbags. Having trouble with the old lady? Looking for a younger one? Want to find out how to rob a bank?

Ask Grant.

No New Episode? WTF–!

Yep. No new episode this week. Ugs and I planned on recording this weekend at Wondercon, but we were swamped with commissions, schmoozing and general naughtiness. So instead we'll be doing a wrap up show with Brian, our man on the floor and Grant, the bitch that faked on us.

Expect sparks to fly!
