This is the Live episode we recorded on December 22nd, 2011.

For the broadcast, we had an extra Skype account logged into our conversation, which in turn broadcast the call out to Mixlr, which sent the audio live to the internet. The setup worked pretty well.

During this episode, we chat in the chat-room with listeners, and haul one of our long-time listeners ("Dark Canary" on the forums) into the conversation. We talk a little bit about Christmas, and a lot about why we changed our format from "The Modern Gaming Podcast".

Have a listen!

Have any questions for us? Contact us on Google +, at rob@accidentalsurvivors.com, chris@accidentalsurvivors.com, fraser@accidentalsurvivors.com or on Twitter by using @accsurvpodcast.
