    147) Truth or Dab

    147) Truth or Dab

    Simon and Mystery Guest are back! We drink a Sweet Baby Jesus from DuClaw, a Puma Cola from Sprecher, a pina colada Smooj, and root beer Faygo. After that we break loose from format and play the game "Truth or Dabs", a card game version of truth or dare where the consequence is always 2,000,000 Scoville Unit hot sauce. It's funny, or my name ain't Zorro.

Hang out with your new best friends!

If you’re looking for a chill video game podcast that’s fun and well-produced, look no further. Ginger and Willie are a lot of fun, are incredibly good and awesome people, and they have great guests on.

Great hosts and Excellent Recommendations

Even as someone who doesn’t personally play a lot of video games, this podcast is an excellent listen on my commute home from work! The hosts are extremely passionate about the topics making it an engaging podcast, and the drink recommendations are a huge plus! I have stopped on my drive to pick up a pack of the recommended drink on my way home so that I can enjoy it after work! Would definitely recommend taking a listen

I like beer and I like video games

The host being charming and easy to listen to is just icing on the cake. What a fun mellow time 5/5 would recommend
