Episode 61: Ben Flips a Car

In this special edition of Read the Manual Ben tells a story of how he almost died. The big twist at the end is that this isn’t actually a special edition of Read the Manual, you’ve been had.

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.

Episode 29: That Bastard Left Me

Doba and Ben bring in the new year by doing… this! Wait, what? Whatever. We know how to party. Don’t even try and say we don’t know how to party. Cause we do. We totally do. Shut up. Also we talk about Christmas, because that happened I think. AND THEN BEN LEFT DOBA AAAAAA.

This week’s big topics include the Twilight Zone, Christmas presents, the Catherine soundtrack, Grave of the Fireflies, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Geek Love, K-On!!, How I Met Your Mother, Steam Christmas Sale, Sequence, Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land, 4 Player Podcast, Kirby Mass Attack, and Arkham City.

This week’s Random Topic is: Poker.
