Episode 198 – Max Temkin

This week Rich is off getting married, so he sent me a guest host: Max Temkin! Yep, co-creator of Secret HitlerCards Against Humanity and Blackbox sits down to go through a regular episode! So buckle up for the least typical, typical Going Last ever!

NOTE: When I asked Max where you could find him on the Internet, he didn’t want you to spend time finding him, he’d much rather you spend that time on 5calls.org – so head there now!

NOTE #2: Make SURE you listen to then end. Just trust me on this one.
