Left Trigger Right Trigger

Join us every other week as we convene the 'video game book club.' Each episode is structured around a topic: anything from 'Trust' to 'Robots' to 'Body Parts'. Listen in as your hosts each bring a game to the table that they think exemplifies that topic in some way. Give us a shot, won't you?

Welcome, dear listeners, to the spookiest episode yet! Dapper tentacle monster Andrew Zucosky joins the crew to discuss "Horror" in videogames. Mad scientist Greg puts his latest experiment on display. Beppo, the murder clown, comes for your blood. The ghost of Young Sheldon (Praise Be) blesses us with his terrible dreams. Scary Maguire stops in to reanimate jokes that died over two decades ago. It's a real massacre from bloody start to bloody end.

He is Risen! The boy-king Sheldon has arrived and a new age is upon us! All shall quiver at the recitation of his holy word: Bazinga! The hosts discuss "Luck" in this episode, but we all know luck is irrelevant when Young Sheldon walks beside us. Giovanni explores the world of mobile games, now irrelevant since all people will be streaming episodes of Young Sheldon during their commute. Dave discusses his conflicted relationship with Mario Party, especially since now the real party is taking place every week on CBS. Greg dives into esports, the only type of sports allowed under the new Bazinga Code of Law. Colin talks about the whims of fate, which were fortunate enough to bring us his holy countenance. Sheldon be praised.

Please take a moment to praise Young Sheldon on Apple Podcasts. Let us know that you've followed the holy scriptures by writing "Bazinga" on our Facebook and Twitter. Subscribe to our YouTube Channel, where we will only post reruns of Young Sheldon from here on. 

Games discussed include Candy Crush, Mario Party, Hearthstone, and Hand of Fate.
