AR Podcast #19: Redonkulous

The seagulls are back for another podcast about fighting dragons, microtransactions, Kinect features, word puzzles, knights, beer can noises, more dragons, and tanks. Lots of tanks.

Reticle or ‘reticule’ is the word of the podcast.

(For the record, we named this podcast when it was edited on August 20th. Sometimes podcast serendipity just happens.)
