This is Breakfastnauts. The Polygon community has a habit of coming to PD to sit, eat breakfast and catch up on the overnight happenings. Why not have some fun with that? Twice a week Paddy and I (and maybe a guest or two) invite you to spend fifteen minutes of your morning routine with us - the length of time it takes to consume a freshly made beverage - and we'll do our best to put a spring in your step for the rest of the day. Let's see how this goes.

Welcome to Breakfastnauts.
