Home Run

Russ, Chris, and Allegra are so much fun to listen to. And every episode of this podcast is either a lovely trip down memory lane or a reminder that there are fun things out there that I can get into right this second! Thanks, Polygon crew.

Good, Good, Good

Fun, informational, and the hosts are absolutely fantastic together. Never thought learning (about admittedly pretty cool things) could be so chill. Also, in the spirit of beggar's/devil's/mischief night: what did the skeleton call their s/o? their vertebae 👻

Another joyful product from the terminally delightful team from Polygon.

You know I love these sweet boys n girls, you know I love history, you know I love fun, so this is right up my alley. Great stuff. Gimme more Allegra content.
