Episode 037: [Origins] Kenneth Hite Interview and Last Night on Earth

In another Origins show, we review the survival horror board game, Last Night on Earth from Flying Frog Productions. We also had a chance to interview Kenneth Hite. We had a blast doing this show.

One to ponder... Is it a sign that the world may indeed be ending when Ken Hite's and Andy Hopp's Where the Deep Ones Are is available for pre-order on the Target website?!
