Hello everyone and welcome to the SSWL Network news desk. We are posting this to let you all know that we are taking this week off. However, we will be posting a non-audio version of the show later this week. Basically that means we will have a full rundown (movie/video game/tech news, flix we pix, other randomness, etc.) of what we usually cover,  but without the audio. So keep checking back  for that and thanks for reading/listening.

This week not only marks the 27th episode of SSWL, but also marks our first interview. We welcome writer, director, and all around film maker, Ryan O’Leary. Ryan is the man behind the Y the Last Man short film we reviewed back in April. Apart from that, we still hit you with the usual news and notes from the world of movies/video games. Check out what we covered  under the cut and enjoy the show.
