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.

Michael Buffer, 8 years after starting to use the phrase, trademarked "Let's get ready to rumble!" in 1992. Since then he's sold the rights to several different video games, advertisements, music albums, and more! As of 2018, he's made $400 million in revenue from the trademark. We here at Left Trigger Right Trigger applaud his achievement and hope he won't sue us for saying his iconic catchphrase.

In this episode: Giovanni calls out Jeff Grubb. David wonders how things are the same in different places. Greg taps the well again. Tess hits us with a haymaker.

Aristotle. Plato. Socrates. These philosophers have shaped the way the modern world talks about thought. But what about how we talk about think? Luckily, we're up to the task of filling in the area the old guys left out.

In this episode: David needs some space, Giovanni works on a real stumper, Tess sees the full shape of a game, Greg figures it all out without doing anything.
