This week, the incredible Matt Young (Hello from the Magic Tavern, Improvised Star Trek) joins us for a deep chat about what basically becomes Adora's emotional climax for this series. We also talk about important ways the 2018 She-Ra improves on the classic (of which Matt is also an avowed fan), AND a hatchet gets buried...!

Yo, there's another She-Ra podcast in town, and that's awesome!! This week, we're joined by Jane and Nero, hosts of Podcast of Power, a podcast that's just begun its own journey back through the entire She-Ra series. They were gracious enough to jump ahead to the penultimate episode of the series with us this week; we spent a LOT of time talking about Catra/Adora/Shadow Weaver and you will probably have opinions about what we say!

With Panzer Paladin's official launch tomorrow, I checked back in with Tribute Games to talk with game / level designer Fred Gemus! We discuss the game's sophisticated weapon system, how to pace an action game, and his 3 (3!) complete system libraries he's collected.

We're stoked to welcome streamer and She-Ra fan Bailey Meyers to the show this week to dive into an episode about friendship, love, helping in any way you can, and I guess learning what Grayskull is in this universe?? Also, Lauren, Eric, and Bailey launch their brand-new podcast!

Lauren and Eric get feisty on this guestless episode that recalls classic She-Ra tropes (remember "Duel at Devlan"?), and then there's some stuff about cancel culture, too. We are not on JK Rowling's side here.

Sometimes a game is a cartridge. Sometimes a game is a disc. Sometimes a game is a paper shredder, or five people with buttons on their chest. For the latter two, I've spoken with Alistair Aitcheson about his work on The Book Ritual, his multiple live theater shows that integrate video games, and more!

The recent release of the Turbo-Grafx 16 Mini has rekindled Bill and Cliff's nostalgia for their childhood gaming system! They talk through their early gaming memories, some games to try out (even if they're not in English!), and some games to avoid. Johnny Turbo would be proud!
