Hurrah for C&C!

You know you’re in for good pod when the show notes make you laugh!

Usually Great

Like the show, except when Pip is on and drags the entire conversation into nonsense and despair.

Jesse (name already taken) ,

Super fun

Great podcast. The emphasis on the experience of playing games, rather than the games themselves, is very welcome. Pip is particular delight.
