#186: Imperium: The Contention


In case you missed it, we have now offered to the series of tubes the definitive website for all your non-porn non-cat needs. Sowronggames.com is your official repository for all things SVWAG, including all of our episodes, editorial policies, the full Swagoo, and definitions of all the arcane cant of the show (such as Swagoo). Excellent for neophytes and long-time Svwaggers alike. Unlike other websites, we don’t discriminate against bots! We believe sapient bots deserve full moral recognition, and that includes access to our font of digital nonsense. You’re welcome, Messrs. Prime and Magnus.
