    Sky Pirate Radio would like to personally congratulate you on surviving our harsh universe long enough to listen to our KINGDOM HEARTS 3 SPECTACULAR! Listen in abject fear as Kevyn, a hardened veteran of the Kingdom Hearts franchise, and Jace, a bumbling embodiment of Barney Rubble, rip right into the hot-button issues of the Kingdom Hearts Triple - such as the qualitative properties of Gummi Ships, the disturbing lifelike qualities of Donald Duck, the strange paranormal event that ties Remy the Rat and Scrooge McDuck together. In true Sky Pirate fashion, we do a deep dive on how the combat stacks up against prior entries in the series, the bizarre, dreamlike quality of the new Pixar worlds, and Donald's twisted addiction to fireworks.

We discuss what they have been up to recently, including Patrick's upcoming Tobias & Jube comic and Dan's work at Concordia University in Montreal, before getting down to the nitty-gritty discussing both Dan and Patrick's work in the unrelentingly hilarious and irreverent video game magazine Total Gamer, as well as the importance of its predecessor GBA World. We also chat some about the rise and fall of their website and semi-Total Gamer sequel Eegra, before topping of with a discussion about the importance of managing creativity and marketing to make a living doing the things you love.

    Without a Joey around to ground the proceedings, Jace, Kevyn and Max go hog wild broaching all types of TOO HOT FOR TV TOPICS, including Jace's mysterious rivalry with John Carmack, Max's consumption of malicious liquids and Kevyn's endless pursuit for a copy of Tai 3. Will these three narrative threads tie together in a freak coincedence the likes of which podcasting has ever seen? No, but the boys do uncover a secret related to Club Penguin and Julian Assange that is so revelatory, so MIND-BOGGLING that you'd be crazy NOT to believe it! Also, they talk about some video games a bit, like Breath of the Wild, NieR Automata, and I guess Star Wars Battlefront? Again? Whatever. It's Sky Pirate Studios, here to make your 2017 have that sugar & spice it so desperately needed.
