In our never-ending quest to record this podcast with somewhat tolerable audio quality, Episode 33 is coming to you in glorious stereo.

Have a listen (streaming or download) below, and let us know what you think. Older episodes are located in the archives if you want to do some sort of direct comparison.[powerpress]

As well as that, I’ve been playing an early alpha of Kingdom Come: Deliverance, and Tim’s tried out the latest Rise of the Tomb Raider DLC.
