67: Firewatch (Indie Game Edition)

If we've learned anything over the last few episodes, it's that video games aren't all Calls of Duty and Super Marios anymore. Case in point: this week's game, Firewatch, in which you play as a guy who takes a summer job in the National Parks Service, watching for forest fires. Okay, okay, so it's a lot more interesting than it sounds. In addition to the abundance of natural beauty, you'll explore hidden caves, encounter shadowy figures, and investigate a streak of missing persons. Yeah, turns out life off the grid can get pretty suspenseful! Who knew? Eric and Marcus sure didn't! So check out this third and final episode in our indie game series and find out what else you don't know about the wilderness!

64: Brigsby Bear

Hi friends! It's your friend and host for this week, Andrew! Isn't it great that I get to do a show with my friends, Eric and Marcus, and you all (also my friends) listen to it? The world is a big place and full of strange and unknown things, so it's important to have friends to go through it with. I learned that from Brigsby, but you know that. ... Wait... You don't know Brigbsy? From TV? He's a bear that travels through space and time, teaching lessons to aliens and children. It's my favorite show! Eric and Marcus didn't know anything about it either, so I pitched it to them in this episode, along with the story of my friend, James, who's had a really weird life. I hope you like it! It's dope as s***!
