How does Coffee Talk compare to that other food services visual novel, VA-11 Hall-A?

I was just thinking about motivation to play because I realized I haven't touched Disco Elysium in a few weeks, even though I was impressed by what I did play of it. I've simply had a bunch of busy or stressful weekends in a row, and while Disco Elysium is a good game I've been craving familiar comforts instead. Some nights it's easier to lie on the couch with my cat and play Tetris 99 until the Switch battery dies.

Yall just sold a copy of Thief Town.

Just hopping in to say how great Rich (Harpomarxist) is on the ‘cast. I’ve been just SWAMPED for Months, Shawn’s in the syphilis commune and Sands has been swamped too, but boy is it great to hear the CC continue to be just my favorite hour of the week, even when I’m not on it! Thanks so much for joining Rich!

+1 to this -- GWJ has a deep roster now and theHarpoMarxist just slots right in like an old hand. I've enjoyed the recent variety of voices. Well done Amoebic on herding all the cats.

Thank you rabbit and Felix! That means the world to me. I’m really grateful to Amanda for helping me wrap my head around this medium and for being the best scene partner (to borrow the actor parlance) anyone could hope for.

On a personal note, I’ve just barreled through a heck of a busy stretch over the past few weeks where I’ve been pushing myself on a number of fronts (some very much outside my comfort zone) so please know you both just lifted my spirits enormously! Lots gratitude to you both - and to this community. I feel fortunate to be here and I’ve been having an absolute blast Joyconjurering and getting to hang out on the pod!

woo! called out! Thank you eleima

I watched a Let's Play on Thief Town and it's great. Also, I have been really loving the podcast the past few months, and the new voices make it feel fresh. Thank you!
