Inside Scullion's Skull!
Been following Chris since the days of ONM and have always enjoyed his work! I've always been a podcast guy though and so I was thrilled to see that he has started up a new one. The format is simple but effective, and I especially like the inclusion of his wife for the "Year of Louise-y" segment. So far so good, look forward to more!
I've been a fan of yer man Scullion's work for a while now and this podcast is a great continuation of that work but in audio. Chris is a welcoming an amusing host who knows his business. Looking forward to seeing this podcast grow. #YoshisEggs
