In level two we touch on tech news from Valve expanding to more than just video games,<wbr> Android vs Apple and if anyone ACTUALLY cares about the mars landing. In level three we have a heaping helping of entertainment news from Sin City 2 to the H+ digital series (with the obligatory super hero news inbetween) and finally we close out the show with Drinks at the Inn. </wbr>
