[Our awesome community is putting together a number of charity events to help out Lv99Ron with his medical bills. Help a fellow Dtoider out and be entertained at the same time! -- JRo]
Recently our friend, Lv99Ron, almost died. After three emergency surgeries on his lungs and three weeks in the ICU, Ron is making a full recovery at home. We are so thankful and blessed to still have him in our lives. Our thanks and prayers go out to the doctors, nurses, staff, family, and friends who helped him through this ordeal. If you want to read a fantastic, scary, and ultimately happy ended detailed summary, check out Ron’s blog post I’ve Come To Far To Die Now.
Last weekend I was joined by Chad Concelmo, Colette Bennett, Brad Nicholson, and Stella Wong. Needless to say, it was glorious. I am happy to make available the Ronathon All-Star Podcast. Our main topics are Donkey Kong games, Chad’s Virtual Console reviews, the future of DLC, and PAX/convention advice and tips. Our off-topics include fawning over Brad Nicholson’s Muscles, cybering, Birdo’s history, 3D, and whether Brad will see Expendables or Scott Pilgrim first. And that’s just the beginning.
There was an issue with E-junkie and any donations that were made previously when downloading the podcast did not go through. Currently, the podcast can be downloaded for free, but we are asking everyone who downloaded/downloads to please donate 99 cents using the button below. I know paying for a podcast is kinda weaksauce, but I must stress that every cent is going to Ron and his family to help pay for medical bills. We will not be taking any money to help with distribution or any other payments whatsoever. This is a charity podcast and not a commercial endeavor. Let this be a good deed done and you will be repaid full with laughter, fun, and entertainment (not to mention how much sexier you’ll become).
Please click below to download the podcast, and PLEASE make sure to donate!
