Too good couldn't breathe! But no, Spencer has an admirable and well thought out interest in the anthropology of this stuff, you'd do well to give it a shot.
Well produced and heart warming.
Seriously, Tordoff does an excellent job writing and producing this podcast.
Legitimately one of the better podcasts w/ this format/subject matter.
"This American Life" for people who grew up with games
A thoughtful series, absolutely worth a listen. Hope it keeps going and keeps improving.
