Welcome to our soft reopening of the Dating Ourselves Podcast 2020 Season. Co-host Brian has locked himself away as Adam and Paul to a play-through of Organ Trail, a retro zombie survival game that mimics and parodies the educational text-based video game series: The Oregon Trail. Give this one a listen as Paul outlines how comfort is something you seek in a zombie apocalypse and Adam lets us know that no one gets out of a zombie apocalypse by playing it safe. Also, feel free to check out the video of all the action on the Dating Ourselves Podcast YouTube and Facebook pages.
Changing it up again this week on Dating Ourselves, while we take our winter siesta! Brian has dipped into the archive to create something special. Using a new mix we present Bloopers #5!
