Crossing Zebras Episode 15


Welcome back hardy listeners as Jeg and I are joined in this epic voyage of wonder and discovery by the host of the Podside Podcast, Placid! We have a wide ranging field of discussion this week including the start of the $10,000 New Eden Open, the current feud between and the general EVE blogging community, the currently insularity of AAA both in and out of game and a wee Q&A on how our move to CFC is going.
