008 - The Horrible Secret of Monhegan Island 05 (Providence Cycle)

A quick note about this episode - we're trying out some live, in-game sound effects which worked out really well. However, this required a change of recording software and the one used is a bit buggy. At times, Jim's audio is a second or so ahead of the rest of the Players'.
