Remember last week when I mentioned that we would be seeing total game-changing developments to Checkpoint every month until the end of the year? Yeah, so... here's the first one. It's my absolute pleasure to introduce you to our newest serialized podcast series: Nerds of Pray! Our first episode will be dropping *live* on our Twitch channel this Sunday at noon.
