Not your cookie cutter podcast

While they’re obviously just a bunch of people Skyping, the SmashPad staff definitely had a strong understanding of the industry and doesn’t rest with your typical thoughts. Every one of the regulars has differences in their thoughts and it really makes the experience both more human and respectable.
