Digibro Never Shuts Up Episode 6

Tonight I’m joined by two guests—borderline co-star Brandon Tolentino, and my best friend, Dang-san! This podcast is dedicated to the purpose of discussing video games at the request of Lucus-FariaaA.

I recommend skipping the first five minutes or so because you can hear someone eating Chinese food and it’s sort of grotesque. Also nothing of great importance is said except for the introductions. This episode is super long and covers all kinds of stuff, so the breakdown is gonna be huge!
