Logan Moore reunites with Max Roberts for the time-honored tradition of predicting E3. Before that, they chat about Logan’s new job at Comicbook.com and just why he loves the Dark Souls game so much.
Chapter Select is a season-based podcast. Myself and Logan Moore pick a series each season and play all its entries alongside guests.
