The Crossbox Podcast

The Crossbox Podcast is me, Jay (Fishbreath), and the editor here at the Soapbox, John (parvusimperator), gabbing for about an hour a month on topics of interest in the fields of gaming, firearms, and defense and foreign policy. Sometimes we delve into books, movies, and technology.
