RCM On Tap

Unknown

RCM On Tap is your 60-ish minute round table discussion on the topics everyone at RivalCast Media is talking about. Killer McCoy, BiomedAlchemist, and the Baroness von Gosu are joined at the bar each week by a different member of the RCM community to share a round and talk about everything from books and music to superstitions and philosophy while tying these topics back to the world of gaming. Join the conversation during their live show Friday nights at 9:30 ET/8:30 CT or weigh in on each week...
