Hey er'body!


Welcome to the latest episode of PTB. We used the new studio again, but to be honest I am not thrilled with the results. The audio quality is somehow better when we don't use it, so until I get that figured out, we are going to go old school for next week. It is a really funny episode, so I do hope you enjoy that.

So we just wanted to get this out. The last episode was recorded incorrectly so this one is just us rushing out a new one with no intro and outro. Hope you can forgive us and enjoy the fact that Charlie recorded a new one to make up for it! You al are the best! thanks for listening! - Ryan
