Episode 400 – No. 1 Content Daddies

Over the course of eight-plus years and 400 episodes (really more, but we only count certain ones), War Rocket Ajax has tried out a lot of segments and served as the breeding ground for a lot of other podcasts. So we asked our co-hosts from some of the other podcasts we do now–Ally Stock of Xena Warrior Business, Matt Fisher of Smark of the Beast, Benito Cereno of Apocrypals, Marlene Thompson of Ghost of a Chance and Jordan D. White of Sailor Business–to hop on our rented zeppelin and celebrate the occasion with us. In the process, we revive some old WRA segments and try some new stuff!
