On today’s episode we not only break Ben but we also hear him describe the most dangerous game in the world. Well… not really dangerous, but risky. Well, not really risky either. Or rewarding.

Read the Manual & the SMYN Network: The Year in Review

OOPS there’s no full RTM this week. Doba was painfully busy editing Red Carpet, helping with GOTY, and hosting the 24 Hour Cast. So that happened. That all happened. That all happened and it all happened at once.

Instead, take this bit that ended up being WAY too long for the GOTY. It’s RTM and the hosts of the other Network shows talking about their years in music, movies, and games. Think of it as a mini RTM and we’ll see you next cycle with RTM 55.
