Tyler and Dave, back in the saddle! Josh (of Uniracers fame) joins us to wrap up our discussion about Phantasy Star IV for the Sega Genesis. We finish talking about the game’s story and the rest of the game’s cast: Demi, Wren, Kyra, and Seth. If that’s not enough to entice you to hit the play button: We sip on Ecto Cooler Iced Tea and talk about circumcision (of the male and female variety!); Dave reveals his suicide notebook; Tyler and Josh talk about the LEGO universe they created; and we read a listener postcard from California.

Please note: There is an important podcast announcement at the top of this episode. Josh was back to talk about Phantasy Star IV, but we ended up talking about The South and Terraria instead. We talk about Fancy Misters and the Immortal Roach. We ask ourselves, “What Would Randy Quaid Do?”. Continue reading
Hey, wait a minute! Is this episode really about Mariah Carey, or are we just serving up some hot click bait?

We take some calls, and (of course) we invent Borat Chess. Continue reading
Pinball Archmage Chris Edler returns! It’s been awhile since we last recorded a show with Chris, so he made the journey down to TADPOG Blanket Fort to talk about Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball for the Sega Genesis. We answer hard hitting questions in this episode like: “Do actual pinball skills carry over to this game?”, and “What the hell kind of video game system is ‘the Acoreyn’?”. Chris also talks about some of the cool new stuff in pinball, and we try some new potato chips.
