First off--Many thanks go to fellow Ninja, Kieran Yanner, for his musical contribution to the changing sound of the Ninja Mountain Podcast.
Kieran, besides being an amazing artist, is also a talented musician and has developed new music for this program.
We know you will enjoy it!In this episode Socar, Patrick, Drew, and Jeremy take a look back at some of their worst printed work. The stuff of failed legend.
