TalkRadar 29 – all about LucasArts

This week we discuss Rogue Leaders, a tell-all book about LucasArts, written by PlayStation Magazine’s Editor-In-Chief Rob Smith... who patiently sits through our ramblings long enough to plug his massive tome. If you’ve ever wanted to know all kinds of trivial nonsense about Star Wars, Maniac Mansion or a planet called Fractalus, this is your podcast.

For the rest of you, there’s talk of Left 4 Dead, Native American stereotypes and a question of the week that could conjure up horrible memories. Oh, we’re also giving away something worth $300, so listen the hell up!

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.
