Free Play Ep. 23 | Escape Rooms


About This Episode

Have you ever done an escape room? Various scenarios designed to stretch your mental capacity and force you to solve inane riddles and puzzles by thinking outside of the box… sometimes literally. Are they all they’re cracked up to be, or is the most challenging puzzle, “why are we still paying for these things?” That what we want to talk about this week on the Free Play Podcast.
