TalkRadar 33 – mourning EGM

After a two week hiatus, TalkRadar returns with an epic-sized podcast loaded with an alarming amount of bad news. First and foremost is without a doubt the end of EGM, one of our favorite magazines of any topic, and mass firings at EGM’s sister site 1UP. Thus, we welcome Mike Grimm, formerly of 1UP to blow off some steam and help us think up fart and boner jokes.

Then it’s a sickening-stomach-punch news blast about Wii Sports, Club Nintendo and the latest Nielsen ratings, plus the Top 7 drunks and several contests Chris is currently running. Two Nintendo DSes could be yours!

Explicit Content Within! Persons with delicate ears should definitely not listen, as they will hear edgy no-no words freely spoken on South Park and HBO.
