November 17, 2020

What's up everyone! After many, many requests, we are starting to podcast our episodes LIVE, and we started this format with Extra Life Game Day 2020!

In this episode, Al reviews how the day was going so far as he attempted the 24 hour marathon to raise money for Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). We had a lot of fun hanging out and interacting with our audience, and send a big thanks to all the folks who came by, including our good buds, the ever awesome Bad Fodder Figures Podcast!

We hope you enjoy the episode! We plan to continue recording live at twitch.tv/RetroRentsAL on the days we record! Follow @theretrorents on twitter for our next recording date!

Hey y'all!

If y'all been listening for a long time, you KNOW Nick (@blackeagleops) and I are huge Star Wars Fans. Especially of Star Wars Games. We have been so stoked for the release of Star Wars Squadrons that WE decided...wait for it...instead of taking time out of our release day gaming to do our usual podcast, we'd just say, HEY! Come chill with us as we play this awesome game together.
