Episode 206 — Solo Acoustic Atlantic Crossing

Episode 206 — Solo Acoustic Atlantic Crossing

Punching Carboard Lineup, MK IV. Better known as the solo acoustic tour. Just Jim here; the only one left after the smoke cleared.

In this episode is an in-depth look at Atlantic Chase, games that earned “10s” and some music recs, including an overlooked list from 2021. A few asides along the way, but that’s the meat of the program.

As that’s the case, no timestamps deemed necessary. You’re an intelligent bunch.
