    In this episode Caitlin Burt and Andre Segers join me for a round table discussion of Animal Crossing New Horizons. Caitlin has never played the game and has so many questions. Andre has slowly fallen off with the series overtime and I am starting to feel some fatigue from the series. Leave a comment below letting us know how you are feeling about the series.

KennedyDawg ,

Exciting show

Came for the guru stayed because Josh is cool! So glad he had The Nintendo Guru on!

Don’t record with the baby in the room

So, my first episode listen was 249. Man the baby cooing in the background was so distracting. Wasn’t able to finish it. I feel for parents finding time to record, BUT your listeners deserve better! Find a time where the child is quiet or away or get out of the business!!

Great show

I mainly love it because it feels like I’m just hanging with friends talking about games. Entertaining and engaging. Keep up the great work.
