Episode #45: Catching Up

EDITOR’S NOTE: During the live stream and podcast recording, there were audio issues encountered unbeknownst to the Fireteam. Please note that we are aware of echo and less-than-clean audio. We will be looking into this and taking steps to remedy this before the next podcast.

The Fireteam returns with an all-new show where we attempt to catch up with the insane amount of content that Bungie has delivered since the dropping of Forsaken. We touch on highlights of the Festival of the Lost and celebrate the Dawning, and look ahead to what’s coming next.

Remember, Guardians, you can call into the show and give us your thoughts. Go on and reach out to us at 703.791.1701 or podcast (at) happyhourfromthetower (dot) com. We’d love to hear from you!
