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.

It's getting hot out there. Wouldn't you like to cool off with some nice, refreshing, thirst-quenching paint? Now we know what you're thinking: "Isn't paint toxic?" But here at Left Trigger Right Trigger we don't prescribe to such pedantic categorizations like "toxic" or "healthy" or "pedantic." We just aim to make sure you're taking care of yourself the best way we can, which in this case is a big tub of paint right down your gullet.* What're our favorite ways to enjoy paint via video games? Well we're glad you asked! Giovanni gets industrious with some definitions. Greg comes face to face with his inadequacies. David discusses how much joy Pizza brings him. Tess helps shine a light on the perils of giving children wall candy.

Hey folks, it's me Buzz Lightyear of the hit film Lightyear. I'm here on LTRT's fishing episode to let you know that you can see my film in June and also, contrary to some rumors, I've never farted in my space suit, not even once. Anyway, I've been told I have to read the following to you despite this being a written description, so just imagine this in my voice I guess? Here goes: 

Fishing! What is it? Who does it? How has it influenced human society, culture, and language? We explore these questions and more in this videogame podcast. Greg flexes his fly fishing skills. David explains why fishing is a bad time. Tess starts a fight with all fish everywhere. Giovanni bears his flaccid claws.
