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?

It was the year 3019 and President Gex was in the middle of his 14th consecutive term in office. Staring out the window of the Oval Office, sipping termite bourbon from an ancient crystal tumbler, he watched the rain patter against the glass and grew nostalgic. His finely honed software-driven mind began to wander to where his journey to office began....100 years before........

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT: LTRT WILL BE AT PODCON JAN 19 - 20! WE'LL BE SHARING A TABLE WITH OUR FRIENDS AT THE ONCE AND FUTURE NERD - COME SAY HI! NOW ON WITH THE SHOW NOTES. 

Congratulations listeners! We've made it to the last LTRT episode of 2018. And what an odd year it's been, since literally no games have come out. As you can imagine, it's been unbelievably complicated to create a video game podcast when there just aren't any dang new games to talk about. Hopefully 2019 will be a little better. Tune in as Giovanni climbs a mountain, Dave plays a song, Colin get devoured, and Greg kills a man. 

Send all your new year's resolutions to our DMs on Facebook and Twitter. Send us your favorite new year's eve kiss ASMR videos over on our YouTube Channel. And please tell us about how bad your hangover is over on Apple Podcasts. We'd really appreciate it.

Games discussed include Celeste, Wandersong, The Yawhg, and God of War 2

Giovanni and Colin have a nice fireside chat about snowboarding. Dave pitches the most ambitious crossover of all time. It's an episode the whole family can love, except for maybe the first 20 minutes that's all thirsting for The Grinch. 

Please send us your personalized Grinch fan fiction on Facebook and Twitter. You can leave your warm beverage recipes in the comments section of our YouTube Channel. And don't forget to leave us a little holiday present by writing us a review on Apple Podcasts. We'd really appreciate it.

WELCOME, BELOVED LISTENERS, TO THE LEFT TRIGGER RIGHT TRIGGER COMEDY HOUR.

Contact juggler Giovanni warms up the crowd with this jokes about scooters (and maybe dead children? It's hard to say). Infamous magician's assistant Colin discusses what it was like in the secret diablo basement. World renowned clown impersonator Greg brings his tragic-comedic stylings to the table in order to totally rag on NPR. What do you think, everyone?
