Rambling Podcast Episode Deux

Oh boy, it’s that time again.

Once again, I found myself rambling to myself, and the microphone was one for some reason.

Once again, I pick up on a ton of interesting topics, just to get distracted and finish virtual none of the thoughts I begin.

Follow me along as I ramble down the path of topics like Marvel’s A-Force, The Hobbit, Swedish Hot Chick Tropes, what stuff you can look forward to from myself in the next few weeks, and so on and so forth.

Good times, indeed.

EXPLICIT right out of the fucking gate.
