Today on the show Rob and Pernell start their own Major League Podcast team, the Wilmington Chiptuners! Not really though, this week’s episode is all about video game characters who carry bats! Or big sticks! Or you know, something like that… we’ve got all sorts of ideas. We talk about the nostalgia we have for places we used to live, the romance of Tommy Lasord, and how to navigate the spirit world of Weehawken New Jersey.
This week’s topic was submitted by listener Wicked Sephiroth! High five!
