On this episode we have special guest L3 James Bennett on to discuss the new (super new) IPG! We talk triggers (Everyone loves triggers!), the other policy changes (We should rename a past episode due to some of these changes), and the newest MTR.

And of course we read all the e-mails from listeners just like you.
