Join us this week as we discuss the ways in which gaming influence us away from the table with our special guest and long-time friend, actor Louis (Louie) Carazo.  Catch him in theaters March 16th in the new Will Ferrell comedy, Casa de mi Padre, but first, take a listen at how gaming has influenced the Monkeys when they aren’t roleplaying it up!
