PodBytes – Episode 20: Happy Birthday, America!

PodBytes Episode 20

“Oh Say Can You See…”

All right, so the fact that today is the fourth of July and Independence Day in the US doesn’t really have anything to do with us publishing the twentieth podcast in our PodBytes series. We just use any excuse to get together and talk about games.

And talk about games we did. For a time at least. The conversation quickly turned into a discussion on the merits of Nintendo’s plans going forward concerning the Wii U. Along the way, we stopped and smelled the roses (they smelled like freedom!), discussed the plot to one of Mario’s best-forgotten games, and Martin disclosed a childhood school secret so shocking, to tell you here would surely constitute a breach of national security most grave.

PodBytes – Episode 20: Happy Birthday, America! stars Martin Watts, Pascal Tekaia, and, after some initial trepidation, Jeff Trewin. Originally recorded on Sunday, July 1, 2012.  Full run time: 60 mins.
