This episode is a bit wibbly-wobbly chronology-wonology. It was recorded last week, when we thought that it was Resonance FM's Fund Raising Week but then we realised it was the week after so we didn't mention it anymore. However it is now Resonance FM's Fund Raising Week so we hope that you are now giving all you possibly can to the excellent radio station that literally makes us more than a podcast.
The other reason this podcast was a bit late was that the Caretaker was in Prague on a works conference #networking which meant that Ste was meant to be uploading this episode last week. However, being the incredibly clever person that he is, the fact that the actual fundraising show has been retconned into making it look like there was a proper reason for him not doing it.
Internal misunderstandings aside, it was a great show this week. Last week. Whatever. Ann stayed at Simon's for streaming fun and Ste watched the Superbowl, had jingle problems and kept his scarf on indoors. And we had Emily Gera, senior news reporter at Polygon, on as a Super-Special Guest! We found out what it has been like working at Polygon from the very beginning, what Emily misses from the old days of videogame magazines and how she is going to bring it back. More importantly we ask hard-hitting questions (from our listeners) about Pot Noodles.
As well as all this we had our usual features which were: Sega Badawi, Game Under, Ann talking about Going Around, Ste talking about Spelunky and Non-Intern Simon talking about BangMan!. This is also the final show featuring Intern Simon that we've podcasted. He's been a great help in making sure that Ann has included all the important news in her reports and we've enjoyed having him in the studio.
