      • Hey brother, love the switch and the podcast. I drive a truck cross country and the switch is perfect for me.  I noticed you are still doing Nintendo live streams and wondered if you ran into any problems,  a good friend of mine is a copyright attorney who also is a YouTube creator and live streamer. Here is a link you might find interesting

        Keep up the great work.
