OMG. Normally I start with hey folks but this week I have with me Sean P. Kelley from Gaming & BS since Phil is out of town. He joins us to dispense some knowledge about the Module in gaming and along the way we do a little social media from an extra dimension and a chat about some podcasts. So strap in for this episode of Rocker boy and Vending Machines or Misdirected BS or Gaming and MS or…you get it. You’re smart.
Note: There is some echoing here and there. Sorry about that.
