Useless Drivel DashCon 2014 FailWhat happens when you do something half-assed, ill advised, and only marginally supported?  Podcasting, that’s what!  Your hosts, Matt and Robert, are back this week and boy, they sure are throwing their privilege around!  Sure, they may not fact check, only moderately amuse, and quite possibly offend, but one thing is for sure, they won’t swindle their listeners out of thousands of dollars… just millions of brain cells.  So, sit back and relax in the lukewarm moistness of poorly inflated children’s entertainment that is life as you listen to another episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!

Episode 78 – NPC’s, Allies, and Adversaries
