Hello the Internet! Welcome to the official show page for 80-Bit Podsmash. We are a weekly podcast smashing conversations about video games with topics that you care about. Please take time to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter with the links below. We are also on reddit at /r/80bitpodsmash; and Instagram, @80bitpodsmash.
