A bonus episode!  We've got some great new serivces to announce, including new FREE iOS and Android apps and new ways to get the Lost Chapters.  But instead of JUST announcing that we thought it would be nice to include our interview with Mack Martin, co-designer of Dust Warfare! Mack was kind enough to sit down with us for a bit at Adepticon 2012 and give us the inside scoop on the how and why design decisions behind Dust Warfare, and what we can expect in the future.
