    Wild Wild Tech - How Does Animal Crossing's Black Market Reflect the Real World Economy?

    Animal Crossing: New Horizons has captured the world's heart due to its cutesy animal neighbors, soothing island vibes, and unbridled capitalism? Hidden beyond Nook's Craney there's a black market emerging on the internet that involves the trafficking of certain characters, and bringing out the worst greed in some players. Joshua Rivera takes a visit to Jordan Erica Webber's island to see what the fuss is about the hit Nintendo Switch game. And we hear from Zach Reino about his crazy pursuit of virtual riches in the Stalk Market and of course his famed turnip jail. And we talk to Eric Peckham who dives into this virtual utopia to try and find out why it has been corrupted by our real-world faults.

    100 Games in 100 Days w/ David Guthrie

    100 Games in 100 Days w/ David Guthrie

    Anything is possible if you just start doing it. That's what Jake and Becca learn when they chat with David Guthrie aka "gameylannister" who recently achieved the lofty goal of playing BGG's top 100 games in 100 days. Sure, it sounds insane, but if you really stop and think about what it means to play a complex strategy game every single day for 3+ months... It sounds EVEN MORE insane.
