It was an honor to be invited up to “The Balcony” by my podcasting mentor, Parris Lilly. We cover a range of topics including but not limited to E3 and its future, Nintendo and its future, social media and its impact on podcasting and the gaming community, exercise, and we preview the 2013 summer movie lineup.
If you’re a fan of my podcast, Just Talking, then you have Parris to thank for that. Give this a listen - you won’t be disappointed.
