Welcome to Tuesday. I hope your week is going by nicely. I got some exciting e-mails in my inbox this morning, so that was good. Can’t quite let you know what they’re all about just yet, but you’ll find out soon. Needless to say, I’m thrilled with what’s coming up. But, in the meantime, it’s some gaming podcasts for you.
