The Action Points Podcast! Episode 142 – Hidden Gems

In this episode:

(Sorry about the delay and the audio quality. It’s all Aaron’s fault.)

We discuss hidden gems: things we love that aren’t as popular as we think they should be. In our roundup: Jackson finished Sense8; we played The Quiet Year and Insider; Dan read Demon; I’ve been playing iOS boardgame apps; and Evan’s been reading Goodnight PunPun and playing more of The Surge.
