Episode 04: Bestor on Decks

May 5, 2017

This week Kyle and JD are joined by Nick Bestor, a PhD candidate studying card games and licensing in the Department of Radio-Television-Film at the University of Texas at Austin, for a rollicking journey through card games. Bestor talks about the journey that led him to studying card games professionally, from not knowing how to play the Pokémon Trading Card Game and living in Japan, to critiquing the My Little Pony Collectible Card Game rulebook, Hearthstone's Pity Time, gaming adjacency, transmedia, and how card games engender an emotional intimacy with a franchise's world that's unique in comparison to books, movies, video games, etc.

Episode 03: Gaming Alone

April 10, 2017

Welcome to the end of JD's childhood! Just kidding. But also this episode really is about childhood. In this episode you'll hear a lot about what growing up with games was like for JD and Kyle. JD and Kyle can trace their different styles of gaming back to when they were wee gamers, with JD leaning more towards solo play and Kyle preferring to maximize the power of friendship. Of course, the lack of ladies in multiplayer and public gaming spaces is nothing new, but JD questions whether harassment is the only reason women don't want to whip out the ol' voice chat mic. Could there be other reasons behind the lack of women and girls gaming in public? Kyle really does ruin JD's childhood, though. Like. Really bad. "More than one dead kitten" kinda bad.

Episode 02: South by South Cast

April 1, 2017

See SXSW Gaming like you've never seen it before... through audio. Tag along with JD and Kyle as they frolic through the retelling of JD's FIRST EVER and Kyle's DEFINITELY NOT FIRST EVER SXSW experience. Highlights include talking about video games for people who don't like video games, trying to understand what the heck "fun" means, irritating question askers (one of whom may or may not be JD herself), Kyle stealing all of JD's potential friends, Kyle the Illustrator (but not the Kyle you're thinking of), JD's strange and passionate love of bloody cymbal crashes, and three tabletop games from Kickstarter that are just plain ol' super neat. Also Kyle loves Devolver and JD messes up not one, not two, but THREE different names and game titles. And those are just the comical errors she knows about! The possibilities are endless. 

Stuff we mentioned...
Skyrim
Horizon Zero Dawn (which JD misnames)
SXSW Gaming
Brie Code
Tru Luv Media
Sagan Yee
Game Curious
Sheri Graner Ray (pretty sure JD messes up her name too)
Eve Thomas
Devolver Digital
Ape Out
Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor (which JD also consistently incorrectly names)
Vast
Kyle The Illustrator
Dragoon
Beasts of Balance
Owlboy
Red Rope: Don't Fall Behind
