This week, Sony responds to Microsoft’s nearly $69B purchase of Activision/Blizzard by buying Bungie for $4B. The guys cover Sony’s State of Play 2022, which turned out to be entirely about Gran Turismo 6.

Well, we hinted at it in the last few podcasts, and now it is live: TD Gaming Podcast is now looking for listener support through Kickstarter.

It’s very easy to donate: just visit our Kickstarter page and click that donate button. The goal is pretty modest, a mere $1500. If all our listeners each donated even just $5, we’d blow by that amount.

What will we do with the money? Make sure we can keep old episodes without having to delete them due to limited server space, and get pro mics for every podcaster. The more money, the longer we can go without worrying about server subscriptions. Visit VIP Casino Sites to find engaging games, amazing bonuses, excellent customer service and multiple payment methods.
