PODCAST: Stage Select FINAL BOSS Holiday Edition
It’s the end of the year and we’ve got one final-boss-sized Stage Select to share with you before we all dive under our respective trees and rip open the nicely (or semi-competently) packaged gifts that have been calling out to us for days. On this episode we have two special guests: Geoff Chorney and Christopher Riccio of Interactive Distractions. With their help, we shall attempt to hit a Christmas inspired high score of 12 topics in one show. Expect us to cover a wide range of topics and an even wider range of tangents. Hey, at least you can’t accuse us of not giving our all this close to the holidays.
- You pick the topics. If you want to get involved, go submit a topic to our ever growing list over at vgevo.com. You can also email your Stage Select questions to our email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to put ‘STAGE SELECT’ in the subject heading. We’ll be back with more episodes (and more guests) next year!
