That's right folks, we finally got another episode up! Rio McCarthey, Andres Cerrato and Chris Pranger joined me to talk about the perilous world of licensed toys. We had a good time recounting some of the worst pieces of plastic that we got our hands on and, on occasion, the nicer toys that we got. The pictures in the gallery are some of the toys that we brought up on air, so you can suffer along with us!
As usual, you can download the episode here, follow us on iTunes or hit the jump to listen. Also, please rate and review us on iTunes if you got a couple of minutes. Enjoy!
