The title pretty much says it all. Jeremy, Daniel, and Jack have a civil, though highly conflicted, discussion of BioShock Infinite ranging from the amazing music to the sketchier elements of the plot.

The song that ends this particular episode comes from BioShock Infinite's "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" as performed by A. Habershon and C. Gabriel. 

Thank you Irrational Games for one o fthe most enjoyable and thought provoking games in a while.
