Hey buds, rip roarin question for yas: do you think The Proclaimers would have made that song if they had to walk 1001 miles instead of just 1000? Also, were they, being twins and all, singing about twins? Or did they both want to get with the same girl?

My favorite moment is @JosephYaden ‘s collective disgust anytime he reads or is about to read anything from @TurnerandDouche. 

Mass Effect will always have a special place in my heart, regardless of what has happened/will happen to it in the future.

#1 Turner and Hooch Fan

My favorite part of the show is whenever you answer a question from this handsome guy.

My favorite moment was when you guys discussed the game idea I had called Bongerman with a bong peripheral controller

Samuel Guglielmo

Making y’all debate over who Best Sam was.

Here Are The Nominees For The 2020 Game Awards

Listener Questions

Vaughn Hyde

@HydeLegion

I have 2 questions.

1: What do you all think about the idea of recency bias in the Game Awards nominees?

2: How do you feel about the state of the industry? With several outlets seeing massive layoffs or completely shutting down, does it make you worry for its future?

Scott Oroepel

@scottOroepel

If Among Us is nominated why wasn’t CrossCode? It’s up for my GOTY this year.

Also, I can’t choose between Ashley Johnson and Laura Bailey. Both are phenomenal. Where do you stand?

@TurnerandDouche

Hey gamers, question for you: what if energy drinks were made from ground up sausages?
