Sir Dreamstate ,

Timeless classic with endless fun

These guys have been doing this for well over 12 years and yet it always seems fresh. I am always amazed not only of their industry knowledge, but their ability to remember names and details on the fly. The Patreon weekly game show is always fun to play along. Thanks for all you guys do and here’s to another 850 shows!
