Podcast: Illegitimate Review Play in new window | Download | EmbedWe look at some real end of the world stuff. I mean, ghost-hunting, pope-quitting, rocks-falling-out-of-the-sky kind of situations. Towerbot also drops some existential bombs in our Ask Towerbot section, The Repeater continues to get his geek hole filled, and there’s finally proof about Bigfoot. The only question […]
