Episode 156 Pizza Party is the Best Party…Oh, and Our Video Game Summer Run Down (Right click and save as to download, or find us on iTunes, BlogTalk Radio, Stitcher, Google Play, or TuneIn).

This week we chat about what we’ve been playing this summer and what we are going to be playing to close the summer out before school starts back in a few weeks. We also talk about representation through character body types in Overwatch and Fortnite (aka thick thighs and lies?) , streaming as a gamer, and community building.
