    ALERT: Please Redownload Episode 270: Video Game Apparel for the Fixed Version!

    ALERT: Please Redownload Episode 270: Video Game Apparel for the Fixed Version!

    Hey folks, Bob here—earlier, I goofed and uploaded the raw version of Episode 270 to this feed, which was live for about nine hours before I caught it. If you want the full version with music, edits, and all the good stuff you expect from us, just delete the version of 270 you currently have, and grab the new one.
    Also, if you missed the news, we have a new $5 Patreon tier for exclusive episodes, and as a special bonus for early adopters we have two waiting for you right now! Sign up today at this level and you'll get to hear an episode about The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy text adventure, one about Super Mario RPG, and a new Patreon-exclusive episode every other Friday. (They won't be available on this feed!) If you've been on the fence about supporting the show via Patreon, now's the perfect time to sign up.
    (Apologies for the sorta-rough iPhone recording quality—I wanted to get this message out ASAP.)
