Relative Dimensions #32: "Remembering Our Troops....And How To Podcast"

Like trying to restart any good habit, Philip and I were struggling to start podcasting again - but we recorded one this week! Being Memorial Day, we remember our troops, and then move right in to talk about the awesome things that we've done over the past month or so. I've tried a couple of new MMO's, restarted playing others, while Philip's been enjoying him some Romulans in Star Trek Online. Oh, and Xbox One?
