This is great 👍🏿 👍🏻👍🏾👍🏽👍🏼👍 I’ve been listening since I was 11. My favorite episode was when the fake Batman was fighting some dude
ET is not a bad game. Have you ever even played it?? the pits are temperamental, but even as a kid I figured out how to usually not fall down back into them on accident. Pretty sure it was the first three-dimensional world which had never been a thing before and the gameplay was way better than some of the actual crappy Atari 2600 games that had come out during that era. I do love the show, but I wonder if you’ve actually ever played the game ET
Good stuff, kind guys, warm feels, grime facts. What more could anyone need?
