    Hi Matt,

    Love your show… seems like you have the same interest as me – metal, RPG’s and ale 🙂
    Do you maybe have newsletter? I subscribed on Youtube and Twitter, but get overloaded by all my other subscriptions.

    Hi Matt, great show. Maybe you could find the giuys who did Thief or Age of Empires for a chat?

    Hey Matt,

    I just watched your interview with Graeme Divine from 2012 and loved it. I’m going to be interviewing him next week and I was wondering if there’s anything you wished you had asked him or anything that you’d ask him now?

    I appreciate you taking the time and I hope you’re staying safe,
