Cheers, loves! Episode 79 of The Cavalry is here! Joining us this week are Matt Zornes aka Slambo, Stephen Parrish aka Tankzord and back, but this time she is staying...Melissa Schissler aka Melarina joins us as the third official host of the Cavalry!

We welcome Melarina with a couple of intense questions... and we FOR SURE had no motive to spark a podcast rivalry... (Cough... WPR...Cough...)

Opening up this episode is a discussion on the abnormally large population of women who play Overwatch compared to other first person shooters.
