We're back! (?) We catch up on everything that's been going since the hiatus before starting another hiatus. Minor spoiler warnings for The Last Jedi, Detroit: Become Human, and probably some other stuff. Also a little E3 happened (this was recorded before the Sony/Nintendo stuff).

In an entertainment industry oversaturated with sequels, Retsutalk seizes the opportunity to follow suit and make a follow-up podcast to Sidekick Chat. It would be a minisode if it weren't almost twice as long as what we've done so far! Ironicus returns for more and receives tenure as he lectures his way through the entirety of Dungeons and Dragons history. We go into a little more sidekicky type stuff since we somehow skipped that in the actual Sidekick Chat episode. Then for whatever reason Kickstarter, the Metal Gear Solid franchise, and Dr. Who all get brought up. It's a hail mary of conversation topics so Ironicus won't ever need to come back again!
