Sneaky Dragon VS Colin Upton

The Sneaky Dragon podcast featuring Ian Boothby and David Dedrick go head to head with local comic book legend Colin Upton. Three men enter the room, only two leave. Then later the third leaves. Or possibly they exit one at a time. The door isn't really large enough for three to leave at once. Don't worry, they'll work it out on the day.
