Episode 2: MOUNTAIN EXPLOSION

On the outside, Mountain Explosion just seems like your average off brand 2-liter bottle of Mountain Dew. Unimpressive, unpowerful, not actually Mountain Dew. On the inside… it’s pretty much the same. BUT IT’S CALLED MOUNTAIN EXPLOSION GUYS, HOW COULD IT NOT BE COOL?

Mountain Explosion! The official off brand soda of Read the Manual!

Welcome to the first episode of Read The Manual, hosted by thedobaga (Doba for short) and GymLeaderBen (um… Ben for short). On this podcast the two of them talk about the music they’ve been listening to, the movies or shows they’ve watched, and the games they’ve played since the last episode. It’s a little rough to start out but I hope you all stick with us through this journey!
