Episode 34 - Special guest host Grant Leighty!

00:0000:00

Welcome to CoCoTALK! Episode 34, the first live CoCoTALK! we've had in about 3 weeks. Due to home internet issues, ogStevieStrow has been unable to live stream the show, the past few episodes have been pre-recorded.

Today Grant Leighty takes over as both the live stream host and the show host for episode 34.

The primary topics discussed were Discord, the new audio/video chat application most of the panel of CoCoTALK! use to communicate behind-the-scenes, as well as some of the differences between using various emulators and real hardware.

Next week we hope to be back to the regular program, thanks for sticking with us.

On the show:
