The Gutters: 5-21-19

Direct Download (39:19)

This episode I talk about my health (ugh, right?) and the 7-minute workout, the former City of Heroes secret server and how that may impact the City of Titans development, and my upcoming trip to Edinburgh, Scotland, where I solicit comic book shop recommendations. I also talk about the Sean Connery Bond films, Avengers: Endgame, Game of Thrones, the Chris Daughtry concert with Dan Layus as the opening act, and some new podcasts I’m listening to: Meanwhile at the Podcast and White Lies. I end the show talking a bit about how I love the trust we podcasters have with each other.
