It’s Our Fourth Anniversary! – Episode 157

 

Tonight @NineOf12 and MadCapMisc were joined by a new host, Rei, and special guest @WillieDills to celebrate four years in the life of this podcast.

We reminisced on old episodes, talked about the future, and heard the origin story from Dills himself.

Great conversation all around, I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
