“You Too Can Help Us Kill Nathan”
This week on the Hey Poor Podcast, we get the band back together with I “John Romero Retweeted Me” Coleman, Jay “Good Good Space Kids” Petrequin, and Nathan “Tony The Tiger’s Lover” Terencio. And this episode’s an interesting one, because it mixes some seriously deep discussions of game theory and game design with conversations about marrying cereal mascots, Conan Exile’s phallus physics, and Bologna Pikachu. We also got eight questions from one forum user this week, which leads to probably the weirdest and most viscerally upsetting audience question segment the show’s ever had, or ever will have. All in all, it’s as close as this show gets to a perfect ep. Enjoy!
