The Awesome Addiction is coming to an end so Shane, Ben, Jason H, Terry and Jason M come together for one last time to record what is easily our their biggest episode yet as a send off to the show they’ve loved putting together for almost 4 years!

They review Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Moana and La La Land, they play a bunch of their favourite games and round it all off by listing each of their Top 5 movies of the year and decide upon the one movie to be crowned The Awesome Addiction’s Movie of 2016.

To anyone and everyone who hasn’t listened to the podcast, I just want to thank you for taking the time to listen to us ramble about what we love and hate about entertainment. It’s really humbling thinking that you would want to take time out of your day to share in the discussion that my friend’s and I have.
