NOTE: Talking Initiative is now scheduled for Saturday 11/17 at 8p ET on the Spark Network Twitch channel.

 

Josh makes announcements about Idle Champions, PAX Unplugged, the finale arc, our newest cast member and Talking Initiative.  Bucky doesn't approve of his humor.  He's rather ashamed, honestly.
