Today is a sad occasion on The Electronic Wireless Show, as Matthew is leaving the podcast, and we’re taking the opportunity to take a short break while we search for a replacement by having staff members perform tricks for our amusement, style of reality competition. But while it’s sad, it’s nonetheless an occasion, which means Matthew steps out in style as we build the perfect dinner party for video game characters. Spoilers: there’s a giant ant and a boat full of cocaine.
Since it’s his last day, Matthew also does a devilishly difficult Cavern Of Lies themed around secret endings. Which one of us will end up dead and loaded onto the cocaine boat while the others retreat?
You can listen on Spotify, or above, or go straight to Soundcloud where you can download it for later. You can also discuss the episode on our Discord channel, which has a dedicated podcast chat room.

Music is by Jack de Quidt, welcome to our table anytime.
Our dinner will be held in the secret wine dungeon of this Hitman 3 level. So the guest list is:
For a storyteller, we have Dandelion the bard from The Witcher. We recognize that he might just be telling stories about Geralt, but that’s okay because Geralt won’t be there.
The Iron Bull from Dragon Age Inquisition is here as a fun toastmaster (and, incredibly, wasn’t suggested by myself).
Fane from Divinity Original Sin 2 is here to perform close-up magic tricks and get upset and reveal he’s a skeleton when the night takes a turn.
Big Socrates, Nate and Matthew’s game-specific giant ant from Borderlands 3 is under the table chewing on a bone.
Elaine from Monkey Island is a feisty pirate with tall tales, and as a bonus will take care of us when we all start throwing up.
Mei from Overwatch will be great for late night hands-on activities and snowballing. Also: science facts!
Lady Dimetrescu from the village of Resi and her presumably normal husband are here to be clumsy.
Food is provided by Monster Hunter cats. Music from the ‘nauts of the Outer Wilds.
Recommendations this week are western TV drama The English, Disney Channel bumper-sting Defunctland documentary and Matthew’s podcast The last page.
