The Giant Beastcast: Episode 31

Happy Holidays! We're officially off from work so we thought we'd tell you a little Christmas tale about cocaine, the military, and art theft. Special thanks to Pat Baer for helping us craft our tragedy.

The Giant Bomb East team gathers to talk about the week in video games, their lives, and basically anything that interests them. All from New York City!

The very first scene interaction is amazingly cringe worthy but I love it

Just a heads up that the podcast episode can't be opened in Downcast, at least for me.

I cannot open the file. Is it because there are dots in the filename and the extension is warped?

Amazing gift! I'm going to go to audionetwork and listen to their Christmas music while I listen to this.

p.s. FRIENDS AT THE TABLE DOT NET Y'ALL, it is the best podcast Austin is on even though the Beastcast is unimpeachable and god-tier.

This is a captivating nonsensical disaster

P.S. for those who are subscribers the premium download works.

@pompouspizza: It should work for you here, but the file name is broken if you try to download it to itunes. You can download it the normal way and just rename the file to .mp3.

This was great. Definitely needs to be animated. I'd love to just see the story written up chronologically so I can catch any parts I might have missed.
