Team Grumpy

Jedi Bittner pointed me to Sith GOG show a few years ago and now I am a full member of team grumpy. Thank you for the superb podcast in every respect. The Internet will be better soon! Not.

Entertaining way to kill an hour

They hate everything about the internet but there isn’t much to be hopeful for so can you blame em?
