    Matt & Daren break out of their comfort zones to bare all and entertain in front of a live audience, as part of the Midlife Gamer MLGX 2017 celebrations. I addition to the usual stuff you'd expect your hosts pass round cake (thanks Serena!), talk about their experiences at this year's EGX, play board game 'Rhino Hero' live with audience help, bring back the Sexy Quiz, and answer questions from the audience. There's a few more surprises, but we don't want to spoil them for you! As with most live event audio recordings, sound quality will be different, though audio was recorded direct from the desk to preserve the highest quality possible, and as be advised that some segments don't make for good radio (just blame Daren). Just like the regular podcast some might argue. Enjoy!
