A podcast by two friends who love storytelling, video games, and romancing aliens! Reignite is a podcast where Matt and MJ play through the Mass Effect series for the upteenth time--this time, their playthroughs will be more critical. Every choice will be made as close to their moral compass as possible and they will discuss the choices they made and what meaning, knowledge, or wisdom they can pull from the game. Play along with them and share your experiences!
