Black Friday Deals for Your Favorite Podcasts

It’s that time of year again. Fortunately, I think the COVID scam did away with the door busters and brawls, but I’m sure people will find some excuse to beat the crap out of eachother tonight.

You need go through no such effort to buy me presents, because I have been thoughtful enough to provide you with the easiest means of doing this.

Most of you have seen most of this from my Birthday message earlier this month. But, I recently updated this a bit.

As always, I find cash most useful, but this is Black Friday after all. So, I’ll call your attention again to my regular Amazon Wish List, but also to my “Limited Time Offers” Amazon Wish List on which I only keep this items that are temporarily discounted and will provide the most bang for the buck.

I just added my Nintendo Wish List to the gifting page. I have a Nintendo Switch, and as of this edit, I did my first game stream last night. Though this was playing Counter Strike on the PC, I do have high hopes for making good use of the Nintendo as well. I have gone through the Nintendo online shop and highlighted some games I think might be fun to play, though I stress I know little of this market and your guess is as good as mine if these are worth the prices. Some, though not all, are deeply discounted for Black Friday. Any games you wish to send me will do, and I’ll be sure to play whatever you send me at least once on stream, so feel free to get creative.

Sadly, the PlayStation Wish List feature appears to be for me to keep track of games I want, and does not provide an opportunity to share it with you to buy games from it. If you are interested in sending PlayStation games, I will let you know that I already have Street Fighter Six, Need for Speed Heat, GTA 5, Mortal Kombat XL, Gran Turismo 7, Tekken 7, WWE 2K3, Red Dead Redemption 2, and Diablo Reaper of Souls. My Amazon Wish List has PlayStation gift cards on it, and these are easy to send that way. You can obviously acquire them in other ways, sometimes at deep discounts, and you may feel free to dispatch these to my GMail account [email protected]

My Walmart, Newegg, and wish lists have been updated in light of the occasion as well, and Walmart in particular has some great deals.

I mentioned that I had been shopping around for a high quality camera. I now have my eye specifically on the Canon Rebel SL3, and there is one on my Amazon Wish List, as several used ones from eBay on my list which I suspect are better buys. This camera is, in my estimation, a good compromise between quality and price. Importantly, it has a “clean HDMI out” feature which will allow me to use it as a webcam for streaming.


Thank all so much for all of your support, I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
