Cast 25: The Final Podcast

AR podcast featured

The recording of our final podcast. The last official Arcadian Rhythms gathering. A pub quiz that someone failed to record. An excuse for a bunch of 30-something reprobates to gather, drink to excess and talk shit about games.

Think of it as you will: it happened, the evidence has been presented, and now it’s down to you.
