Blendover Episode Thirty Four:

It’s a Social Blend Reunion on Blendover as the awesome Jay Fowler aka SilentJay74 kicks off into an unusual story about Cockfighting among Royalty. Terr highlights the identification of a new Mammal that’s actually been known about for decades, and later we continue our breakdown of Microsoft failures this year. We also take a look at some recent Star Wars Episode VII rumors, and an awesome Doctor Who easter egg on Google Maps…

BlendoveR is a fun, hard-hitting pod-cast where rules are regularly thrown out the window in favor of honest, open commentating opinions.  Presented by Greg Davies (cGt2099 from The-TrukstoP.com), and Terr Ciavarra (Media Nox from medianox.bandcamp.com), we stray on to any topic that presents itself or wanders off onto its own tangent.
