Pen Fights Gamepad podcast | Episode 6

We saw Batman The Dark Knight Rises, and we talk a lot about that and many other things in this episode. At the end I read a passage from my work in progress Sci-Fi book where it wasn't clear if a character died or not. We riff on it including my co-host making the sound effects of the gun battle. We laugh A LOT. It was really fun and I'm pretty sure if you listen that you'll be laughing pretty hard too.
