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.

Listeners, Double-O August comes in like a Cookie and out like a Bazooka. This episode blasts its way into your brain, opening you up to new ideas. I guess your brain is a tank or something in this metaphor? When did writing these get so difficult.  

In this episode: David asks, "why do game have a big gun?" Giovanni tries to rocket jump. Tess loads everything she can into a tube and blasts it at you. Greg has worms.  

Hungry for more nonsense and explosive ordinance? Check out patreon.com/LTRT. You can learn all about World Flipper, a game that captured our attention for approximately two months that then most of us swore off of. 

Or you could also check out lefttriggerrighttrigger.com 

Games discussed: Doom, Team Fortress 2, Earth Defense Force 2017, and Worms W.M.D.

A treat! A snack! A delight! A Cookie! Listeners, however you describe it, this episode is sweet enough to satiate your sweet...ear? Is that really the audio equivalent of a sweet-tooth? Sweet-cochlea? That's nothing - this metaphor isn't working. 

In this episode: David reveals the dark underside of Pokémon GO. Giovanni explains why we're in the silver age of character licensing deals. Greg says a lot of jargon in a convincing and scary way. Tess wants to know what your relationship to cookies is like.  

If you're interested in a real sweet treat, you can dip your hand into our cookie jar over at patreon.com/LTRT. If you sign up you can listen to an exclusive podcast in which we only talk about Elden Ring for like 2 hours. Isn't that a sweet treat?
