We celebrate 18 years on the air, as our show is now officially an age where we can vote! Okay, obviously our show can't vote but we can still educate on what's happening in the gaming industry, and on issues effecting the gaming industry such as the many allegations of sexual misconduct brought up in the industry this week. What can we as gamers, and large websites/companies do to help this issue? We discuss some ideas. We also take on the big news about Microsoft closing down Mixer, it's entry in the live streaming space, and announcing it's partners can team up with a quite dreadful streaming solution, leaving most to head for Twitch instead.
