The GuildMag Podcast: Episode 57 – Ember Bay is almost here!

Miko and Aaron are back this week to talk more Ring of Fire hype! Two new videos about the new Living World episode came out this week, and the duo tackle these and the latest news!

Disclaimer: Miko has been fighting a migraine cycle and needed to help her battle with some yogurt & granola at the start of the show. She didn’t mute her mic though, so apologies for any inadvertent lip smacks that may come over her audio.
