FM RoughKnight ,

A Nice Listen

I love the mix of laughs & information. It’s not overtly LGBTQ focused, but I appreciate the unique perspective when it comes up, especially as a self-identifying gay male. The discussions are interesting, the hosts are lovable, & I can’t recommend it more for gaming enthusiasts.
