Episode 20: I'm a Kid Again!
Welcome to Episode 20 of the Break Down Walls podcast! In this episode, while we do certainly spend some time intelligently discussing things like Stadia, and the Bethesda and Pokemon controversies, the majority of this episode is spent following up on, and subsequently nerding out about, Disney Plus. Our nerd tangent leads us to talk about one of our favorite 90's toys, 2xl! It's a crazy fun episode, and as always, I hope you like, share, and enjoy,,!

Episode 18: The one with Too Much Gaming News
Welcome to Episode 18 of the Break Down Walls Podcast! In this episode, we go over a ridiculous amount of gaming news that just all happened to happen between episodes, we talk about how the Inquisitor 4 just isn't worthy of its hype, we answer a question from Cel10e, and much, much more! There is no interview, as that would have made this mammoth episode even longer, but trust me, there's a lot here. Also, we've now officially hit 500 total plays for the show, and I sincerely appreciate everyone who took time out to listen to us. Thank you so much for listening, past and present, and as always, share and enjoy!

Episode 15: Not a Playstation Podcast I swear
Welcome to Episode 15 of the Break Down Walls Podcast! This may be our longest episode yet, but the talking never stops! We address the slew of PS5 news that has come out, discuss Playstation Now, talk about the release of the latest Inquisitor game, discuss a hidden gem in the form of a visual novel, and more! On top of that, we brought in one of the cofounders of our podcast partner, the Gamer Fuel Studios Network, Marcus Axford for a very broad, very deep, and very long interview. Seriously, none of this is a bad thing. This is an episode packed to the brim after our break last week, and I hope you like it. As always, my friends, share and enjoy!

Welcome to episode 12 of the Break Down Walls Podcast! In this episode, Stirlock and I go off on many tangents and discuss many things from the upcoming Borderlands 3, to the new accessible instruction site Lego has created, to my experience with Gears 5, and so much more.
