The Besties 69 - Live-ish from New York!

You ask for more Grant. You get more Grant. That's how things work here with The Besties. We give the people what they want.

But what's this? Zounds! It appears your wish was made on a cursed monkey's paw. You know not what you've done!

You see, in exchange for Grant, Griffin McElroy has been expelled to the land of Germany. Though I must say, the curse could not have happened at a more helpful time, what with Gamescom.

Any who, somehow Frushtick, Hoops, Grant and myself all happened to be in the New York office this week, so we decided to record the episode the old-fashioned way: sitting uncomfortably in four wheely chairs, waiting for the others to snap under the pressure of extended eye contact.
