Obsessive Comics Disorder #45: "If You Are Going To Build A Robot, Why Not Do It With Some Style!"

A bunch of great stuff for you guys this week - we test out some new segments, and even class up the joint with some background music as well!  (I mention in the podcast that the music is by Andrew Allen, but I forgot to mention that everything you hear is off the album "Free Play", available on iTunes, etc.)

Relative Dimensions #35: "We're Bringing It Back Now, Geek Talk Style"

That's right - we thought the show we getting kind of stale just talking about games, so we took our current format and threw it out the window!  If you've been listening since the beginning I intended Relative Dimensions to be a general "Geek Talk Radio" type show, and that's the style that we are going back to.  We are currently coming up with new ideas for the show, so if you've got an idea then send it to us!
