  5. I will be on basic cable in a couple weeks! http://mynintendonews.com/2015/08/29/disney-xd-will-air-nintendo-world-championships-replay-in-september/ This will be a highlight show from NWC. Disney had the competitors mic'ed up, had cameras backstage, and interviewed us before and after the event. So unlike the livestream, you may get to hear me actually talk.
