Dictate the Podcast - S2 E8: Ryan (FM) Touches himself, Proud Pulis, and Patch Problems
In  this week's episode SimonK, Ryan, Paul aka The Northman and FMTahiti rattle through some of  the recent articles released on Dictatethegame.com. We talk about Ryan's deviant (FM) Touching, Samba Jogo Bonito from Crusadertsar, Toby's deep lying playmaker, and FM Tahiti making Pulis proud. Looking at the community  we cover lulls in content creation, and how it's all about enjoying what you do and watching/reading what people enjoy themselves (helpful right?). We touch on creators such as FM Stag, Seatle Red at From the Cheap Seats, and BeardedFM. We briefly talk patch problems and our reaction, before Ryan once again diverts us towards his food fetish with questions about our favourite biscuits.
