Active Quest Episode 123: All The Important News From E3 2021 And Link’s Sex Hair

Josh, Chris, and special guest Abram Buehner from Back Log Banter and CBR review E3 2021.

NOTE: We apologize for the audio issues in this episode. Chris lost his mic stand with the move and needs it replaced. His audio was peaking so it had to be reduced significantly down to be listenable. Chris made the call as an editor to choose the lesser of two evils. The audio will be better next week!
