Ep 68: We are BACK! What have we been doing the past 8 months?

September 11, 2021

Marc, John and Matt are back to tell some stories about what's been going on in the last few months. Sadly, a lot of it is at home during the Sydney lockdown, but that doesn't stop us having a stupid amount of retro to talk about! Pull up a chair, your favourite beverage, and enjoy us talking nonsense...
