||Media Molecule Podcast 25 - Everything is an Experience||After a bit of a break to get Tearaway ready for announce, we squeezed back into Kenny's recording studio for a new episode of the Mm Podcast! This episode allows us to finally talk about our new game Tearaway, and we've invited lead designers Dave and Rex to join us for some Tearaway Chat. Huzzizzles! If you want to send us in some Tearaway questions for the next episode, just drop us an email here: email@example.com Here are the episode links Tearaway http://tearaway.mediamolecule.com http://www.twitter.com/tearawaygame http://www.facebook.com/tearawaygame Jobs http://www.mediamolecule.com/jobs/ Elks http://www.mediamolecule.com/blog/article/elk_roundup/ Geoff Keighley's photo of our papercraft landscape http://instagram.com/p/OqxtdrIsGJ/ 30 flights of loving http://blendogames.com/thirtyflightsofloving/ Dear Esther http://dear-esther.com/ Soundshapes http://www.soundshapesgame.com/home/public.html Lollipop Chainsaw Massacre http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRfroCeDk2E||14 9 12||Free||View In iTunes|
||Mm Podcast 24 - JubilE3||It's the Jubilee Weekend here in the UK - our Queen has been sitting on her throne for 60 years, and so the entire country is celebrating with 50s themed street parties, and 500 million miles of bunting. If none of that means a thing to you, don't worry, because more importantly (to some anyways) it's also E3! The time of trailers and screenshots galore is on us once again, and whilst we at Mm are remaining at home this year, Alice, Spaff and Kenny are here to recount E3 tales of yore, and besides, LittleBigPlanet will be there.||1 6 12||Free||View In iTunes|
||Media Molecule Podcast 21 - Making Headlines||We're off to a rambling start in this week's podcast, with questions about what exactly it is that Jagermeister's made of, and how it is that Scrooge McDuck ever managed to successfully swim in his pool of gold coins. But thankfully, for your sanity's sake (and ours), Kenny, Tom, Spaff, and Alice pull it together and dive into matters of utmost importance: various Scottish confectionery! The topic of the week takes us by surprise, as Tom reveals his childhood brush with fame, having appeared in a newspaper article about potential electrocution. Have you also ever made headlines? Send us your story to podcast AT mediamolecule.com! Also, please welcome LittleBigPlanet's new Community Co-ordinator, Steven Isbell, for his first-time Mm podcast appearance! We wheel Steven in to go over the LBP news this week, which includes !||20 4 12||Free||View In iTunes|
||Media Molecule Podcast 20 - Easter Special||And we're back with your second Media Molecule podcast for the week! Isn't that exciting? It is Easter weekend after all, and as we've missed you listeners so much, Kenny, Spaff, and Alice hop back into the sound cave mere days after the last recording. What is it like to see Obama punch a journalist in Mass Effect 3? How awesome is it that Alice has her white robe in Journey? And how dazzled are your ears by Kenny's use of 'ting'? You can find out by simply listen-ting! Last, but not least, this week's episode sees the second GDC special segment, an audio focussed discussion between Kenny and shiny special guests, Austin Wintory (Journey composer) and Brian Min (Double Fine Production's Audio Director). We hope you enjoy it!||6 4 12||Free||View In iTunes|
||Media Molecule Podcast 19 - Kickstarting The Spring!||The birds are chirping, the sun's been shining a bit, the flowers are starting to bloom, and our clocks have gone forward--all signs that spring has sprung! And with it, a shiny new podcast! It's been a while, and we're down a Tom this week, but Kenny, Spaff, and Alice went into the sound cave to quickly catch up on where it is we've been this whole time, including tons of fun stuff that's been happening in the Little Big Planet world! But that's not all! This podcast sees the first of two special segments we recorded in our adventures a few weeks ago during the annual Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. We hope you enjoy our two very special guests, Greg Rice from Double Fine Productions and Chris Remo from the Idle Thumbs Podcast. They speak with us about their amazing success on Kickstarter--very exciting and impressive!--and then we dive into some wonderful indie games chatter. As fate would have it, and as you may have noticed as it is now the 2nd of April and no longer a Friday, we did not manage to get the podcast up last week. So, it looks as though we're the April Fools after all!||2 4 12||Free||View In iTunes|
||Media Molecule Podcast 18 - C’est La Vita||Do you smell that? Take a whiff -- it's the tantalising aroma of a new gaming device. The PlayStation Vita launched this week in the US and EU, and Kenny, Tom, and Alice are feeling the electronic device envy as folks around Mm towers start to unpack their very own shiny new handhelds. Spaff recounts tales of a recent gam jam that took place at Tarsier Studios in Sweden. And, exciting news -- the Sackies have reached the final phase! All you fine folks can now go and vote for your favourite finalists on LBP.me! A lot of traveling is on the horizon for us podcasters though, with Game Developers Conference around the corner, followed by SXSW, so we quickly wrap things up with some fine (quality not confirmed) jokes! Have you bought or plan to buy a PlayStation Vita? Let us know what games you're looking forward to, or send us some jokes (maybe good ones!) to podcast AT mediamolecule.com||24 2 12||Free||View In iTunes|
||Media Molecule Podcast 17 - Ouchies||Oh dear... Have you ever played a game so vigorously -- so enthusiastically, so -- that you've accidentally given yourself an injury? Spaff, Tom, Kenny, and Alice think back on all the times they've given themselves a game-related ouchie in this podcast's Topic of the Week (spoiler: Spaff is made of glass and is currently sporting a fractured radius). Cradle that sore gaming thumb of yours as we read out some stories from you, the listeners! On an entirely less "owie" note, the Sackies have reached the end of the nominations phase! Keep your butts glued to your seats, as the finalists will soon be revealed and you'll be able to enter . Very exciting :)||10 2 12||Free||View In iTunes|
||Media Molecule Podcast 16 - Burns night tiling||Kenny, Alice, Tom and Spaff attend his week's episode of the podcast , which takes a dive into the mundane as we discuss tiling, shelf erecting, sink unblocking, and moving house. Kenny explains Burns Night, which leads to a special reading of a Burns Night classic poem, and that's not the only performance… that is if you could our impromptu attempt to record a song a performance.||27 1 12||Free||View In iTunes|
||Media Molecule Podcast 15 - New Years Resolutions||We may be saying goodbye to tides of yule and, alas, bidding farewell to the entirety of last year, but please take time to welcome, welcome, welcome 2012's first Mm podcast goodness! In keeping with new beginnings, keen listeners may notice we've freshened up the format a bit – and the addition of snazzy sounds is surely not to be missed! This week’s TOPIC OF THE WEEK (WEEk WEek Week week….echo echo) is: “What is your new year’s resolution?” Feel free to chime in with yours in the comments below! Additionally, Kenny, Spaff, Tom, and Alice discuss who did what and where over the new year, dive into the latest and greatest LBP happenings, dance dangerously close to Kenny’s Star Wars mega-fan triggers, and dust off the good ol’ mail bag. We hope you enjoy it! “Where can I find out about that thing you were talking about?” -The Sackies! Go to LBP.me now to get nominating! -Daytime Fireworks: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPV8zdiySlI -Richard Jacques: http://www.richardjacques.com/ -Star Wars: The Old Republic: http://www.swtor.com/||13 1 12||Free||View In iTunes|
||Media Molecule Podcast 14 - It’s the Sound of Christmas!||Media Molecule Podcast 14 - It's the Sound of Christmas! "Ho Ho Ho!" says Kenny's somewhat dodgy Santa impersonation, for what seems like the second time. Oh, that's because it IS the second time. Behold! The gang gets a dose of holiday 'deja vu' thanks to a failed first attempt at recording the podcast this week in a pub. Alas, the Pubcast was not to be, but don't be sad -- 'tis the season to be jolly! (And your ears will thank us for re-recording in Kenny's sweet sound cave.) It's a jam-packed episode this week, for you dear listeners, on this Christmas Eve's eve, with Kenny, Alice, Spaff, Tom, and John all squeezed into a the aforementioned (cosy) cave to recount their special family Christmas traditions, reveal a few holiday confessions, and revel in Little Big Planet's bountiful collection of Christmas competitions! We hope you enjoy your own holiday festivities, whatever those may be! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! ------------------------------------------------------- To take a look at all the DLC goodness we mention, head on over to LittleBigPlanet.com's DLC page. http://www.littlebigplanet.com/en/game_guide/ps3/downloadable_content/ Interested in participating in one (or all!) of the many awesome Christmas contests and collaborations over the break?

||Media Molecule Podcast 13 - Synchronised Sneezing||With 75% of the gang infected with lurgy, the podcast room is filled with germs this week, and the mood seems somewhat glum - don't worry though, we're still here to ramble on about the latest LBP happenings and somehow steer those conversations into madness. With Christmas just around the corner, we'll be filled with cheer in no time... don't get too close though, you might catch something!||9 12 11||Free||View In iTunes|

||Media Molecule Podcast 11 - 11/11/11 11:11 Eleventyone||A quick Podcast this week, with Alice, Spaff and Costa celebrating all the elevens, and our eleventh podcast.

We talk about the latest DLC costumes for LittleBigPlanet, along with some of the forthcoming releases, and how much Costa loves Final Fantasy.||11 11 11||Free||View In iTunes|

||Media Molecule Podcast 9 - I want to be a puddle||Spaff, Kenny, John, Alex and Alice cram into Kenny's increasingly overcrowded sound room to record another edition of the Mm Podcast! We cover off some recent LBP happenings, before ploughing straight into our recent internal Game Jam, a week of creativity where we all worked on strange and interesting side projects instead of our normal ones. If you want to hear about Alex's plans to make a 20 player split screen game, Kenny's song-a-day challenge, and what happens when you entrust a big bag of clay to a load of game developers, then this podcast is for you!||18 10 11||Free||View In iTunes|

||Media Molecule Podcast 7 - The Sphinx||In this spotlight edition of the Media Molecule Podcast, Kenny, Daniel and Spaff sit down with Mm Art Director Kareem Ettouney to discuss his influences and passions, and how they affected the look at feel of the weird mish-mash that is LittleBigPlanet. We discuss generalities of art in games, games as art, how Mm works as a studio, how you can only be as mad as how serious you are, and Kareem sneaks in his obligatory Beatles Analogy. After the podcast Kareem attended his art class, where he painted this picture... we include it here as a great example of Kareem's personal interests, influences and non Mm work. There's plenty more Sphinx magic for those who are interested, just visit Kareem's website - http://www.kareemettouney.com||4 5 11||Free||View In iTunes|
||Media Molecule Podcast 6 - No You Hang Up!||The classic gang are back together at last, Daniel, Kenny, Spaff and Tom grab some tea and discuss our Japan relief efforts, recent trips and shows, and go over some interesting audio snippets Kenny found down the back of the sofa. Marvel at us as we try to remember theme or level names from LittleBigPlanet, shriek at as u as we get it wrong, and then just give up and enjoy the show. We also answer some questions from twitter, exciting stuff!||4 4 11||Free||View In iTunes|
||Media Molecule Podcast 5 - The User Interface of LBP2||Oh my! We’ve only gone and fulfilled our new years resolution by recording another podcast this year! Mm Podcast 5 is slightly different to what I’m going to describe as the normal way we do things, despite not really recording enough of them to establish any kind of norm. This time we invited Jim Unwin and Nathan Ruck to join the usual gang of Spaff, Tom and Kenny, and focused our discussion on how these guys designed the User Interface for LittleBigPlanet 2.||23 2 11||Free||View In iTunes|

Is this DLC? ;)
This is a fantastic podcast! Without a doubt the best podcast I've ever heard which is run by games developers. I just hope that it becomes regular; maybe even a show a week? 5 star podcast and well worth the subscribe especially if you have LittleBigPlanet!
Pleeease make more
This podcast is one of my favourites and you guys have only made 3 episodes. I'm subscribed to 23 podcasts on itunes and none of them are as funny and entertaining as this.
Really enjoy hearing all the behind-the-scenes anecdotes, cheeky hints to upcoming features and the stories behind how certain aspects of LittleBigPlanet came to be... All from the industry's most community-focussed games developer!
