Ep. 106: July Previews

With our own Darren Lucas doing all the stuntwork for “Skyscraper” we’re excited to talk about it. Whether it will be good? Damien isn’t sure. When we ask her, Kira avoids the question as if her reply could harm her position on the podcast.

Ok, we know jokes on Talking Stars. Come have a listen to how we do it. See how the deal goes down folks. Enjoy. -(Damien)

They cover a lot of ground as the series keeps moving into the depths of the blackest night. Oh that reminds me, there are a few fun effects in this one. At the beginning and somewhere around the game. đŸ™‚ If you like them leave me a comment. Those keep me going!!! They also encourage everyone who works on Talking Stars.

By the way, this is Damien. I had the privilege of editing this fine episode # 93! Just 7 more to 100. We’ll have to do something special for that. Make sure and subscribe to itunes or one of the many great places to listen in the sidebar. Oh, and if you’re interested in being a guest, let us know!
