Greetings From 33: The Grah-Grah Has to Grah-Go

EPISODE SUMMARY

Hey! Are you in quarantine? Well, so are we! But it’s all good, because Animal Crossing: New Horizons is here like a balm on our sorry souls. Join us as we talk about our first days on our new islands, our favorite (and least favorite) villagers, and how badly we want Brewster to drop by and serve us some hot coffee. Wash your hands and stay inside, and join us for another great episode!

EPISODE NOTES

Summary

The world outside may be on fire, but the Greetings From gang is indoors playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Join us as we gush over our wonderful first few days, our highs and lows, and all the blue sky dreams we have for island life.
