    Hey Guys,

    One of the best episodes yet, great stuff. I tried submitting a 5 star review on iTunes, I can’t see it though, (I clicked submit and that’s all I could see). Anyway, I hope it goes through, you guys have the best podcast out there.

    A couple of questions, are you interested in crowd funding at all? I don’t have a ton of cash but would like to support you any way I can to make sure you keep cranking out great content. Also, I don’t have twitter, and tried messaging you on FB, and someone named Jesse (?) replied from the VG tribune site…was hoping to be in contact with Roger, Ricky, Shofu, etc. to get some ideas/questions across…is Facebook / this site a viable way to be in contact? Do you check these message boards?

    Finally, I just wanted to float an idea your way, do you think they’ll include an option to take pics / screencaps to submit to Miiverse? I think if it’s like previous Smash games, there could be a ton of awesome and easily accessible material for fans to enjoy.

    I really hope you guys have a chance to read this, if there is a better way to get a hold of you let me know. Keep up the great work!
