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 and remember, games are just metaphors.

Question for you, listeners - do you think this show has run out of topics? Look, we're not saying that we think the show is out of topics but we're wondering if any of you are under the impression that uh... we're out of topics. No reason, just checking. Anyway, here's the episode on...Shapes. 

In this episode - David set up his new burrow. Giovanni presses buttons. Tess has shape-based nostalgia. Greg explains sword logic.

Hey listeners... we know in the last episode we said we wanted a normal, regular episode. And maybe Beige wasn't quite standard for us. In fact, maybe it was an overcorrection - Beige was too normal of an episode. In response, here's a normal episode that's the normal amount of normal. That sentence makes sense, we promise. Welcome to the Racing episode!

In this episode - David discovers the secret of his namesake. Giovanni becomes a dog - it's all sinking in now. Tess gets distracted. Greg delivers the State of the Union
