    Dog groomer from last week here: The dogs don't mind the podcast much, though my coworkers question my taste in everything when I randomly burst out laughing, then have to explain that the podcast I'm listening to is discussing various, thought provoking topics including poop knives and wiping preferences.

    And I must have been daydreaming during the anal gland expression video. It's as routine to me as you guys turning on your mics.

    Hey guys, just wanted to say thank you for the years of entertainment! I've been watching the feed since the Justin.tv days, took a long hiatus, and now the Spotify podcast uploads have brought me back. I've been on a hardcore 4PP nostalgia trip as a result, and have stopped listening to Kinda Funny Games Daily entirely (you guys are far more genuine and entertaining). I also still have the first official 4PP t-shirt in my closet with Brad, Nick, Travis, and David sitting on the couch. Not gonna lie, wore that bad boy to Highschool back in the day before I graduated in 2011.

    I'm listening during my commutes, and 12-hour night shifts at the factory I work at. You all make my work nights less stressful, and go by super fast, so thanks for that as well! I was never active in the community back in the day, but with this post I hope to change that.

    PS: Super stoked for that Cyberpunk discussion cast coming up. I haven't been this hyped for a game in a LONG time, and it's a game that sounds -almost- too good to be true with the proposed scale, depth, and detail, but it's CD Projekt Red, so that kind of eases my worries.

    Have a great show guys!

    Viggo Mortensen should have been cast as Geralt.

    I enjoyed Nick's old-fashioned cynicism regarding the inevitability of an auto-pilot world that is a mere decade or two away from being as commonplace as Brad's rants against the big game companies' tendency to cater toward the younger mainstream consumer (as any sensible business would, but still poopy behavior). I'd love more disagreement like that, it's always a great laugh to hear you guys have silly discussions that stem from almost entirely unrelated topics. Keep up the great content

    P.S. I am used to Brad being the grumpy "old man. Nick taking over that role is refreshing, not that grumpy Brad is stale

    I know generally you guys don’t get into the politics of the gaming industry but in respect to the Ciri casting call, they specifically asked for a BAME. It gives the impression that they have an agenda behind the casting which I think most people have issue with. I don’t care either way. If it has a good story and acting, I’m in.

    As to why some bathrooms don't have music- when I worked in retail, they eventually turned off the music because they said people would be unwrapping merchandise in the stalls and it was a lot harder in silence.
