Episode 44: Batman & Blackouts

In the year’s final camp episode Ben and Doba sit in a cabin that slowly and surely just loses all its electricity, leaving them to sit in the dark and talk to a microphone for about two hours. Oh, and Paul Terry shows up a bit too. Don’t worry, Doba didn’t screw up the microphone settings this time.

This week’s big topics include stupid kids at camp, the Professor Layton movie (and how it proves Inspector Groski is the shit), the bunches of anime Doba’s been watching, Santa Claus VS The Devil, Animal Crackers, and of course the new Batman movie.

Oh, and Merry Christmas in July RTM fans!

Episode 36: Ben Talks A Lot And Doba Kills Teddie

In this episode you’ll hear a whole bunch of stuff like Ben talking about things for what Doba timed as an hour. Or Doba being angry and hating a character from a game more than he’s really hated anything ever. It’s just another day for Read The Manual. Just another strange… strange day. Oh, and Doba got a new laptop that actually manages to be MORE horrible. Sometimes.

Episode 4: Steamy Late Nights

Unable to record at any reasonable hour, Ben and Doba are forced to record super late at night for the first time. Not that this is really a problem… actually, it’s not a problem so why do we care? Also, there was no steam there… OR WAS THERE? … no, no there wasn’t… huh…
