Hey guys we are celebrating our 19th Round Table this weekend. Here are the details that I give you in the episode. 

 

What: Live Round Table 

When: Saturday August 27 at 6:00 pm Mountain Time

Where: Mixlr.com/dark-tower-palaver

How: Setup an account at Mixlr to join us in the live chat or call us on Skype at 919-335-6319 to Palaver live.

Mixlr works best on a computer, but if that is not possible they do have an app that will allow you to stream the episode live as well as chat (if you signed up at mixlr) but the app tends to lag behind a bit more than using a computer, also you may miss portions as the app buffers. It it not perfect but if you can't be home it is a way to listen in.
