This week I was in NYC for the yearly DJBooth get together and considered just doing the same ol'
amazeballs podcast. But then I realized it'd be, well, about another year before this particular collection of internet talent was in the same room, and I take advantage accordingly.
So I semi-kinda-proudly present to you, the very first roundtable edition of "
". Joining me were DJ Z (aka
), Dave Macli (aka
), Taylor (
) and of course y'all know Lucas (
). And considering that I had just learned the "
Pancakes vs. Waffles
" game, it was only right we played it for the podcast. It'll all make sense once you hear it, I promise.
