SHOW NOTES

Animal crossing is hard. You have to catch bugs, shake sticks out of trees, and make friends. Lucky for us, the internet is here to rescue us from the burden that is responsibility in-game. We share a few helpful services on the old online that make life on an island a little more bearable… oh, and both Kat and Matt had birthdays this week. All that and more this week on the Free Play podcast.
