Comforting and Quirky

This is a perfect podcast. So unique and heartwarming. It’s just as comforting as the game it discusses and analyzes. This pod needs more recognition and needs a second season! <3

Cute and funny!

Genuinely hilarious, but still cute and pure. This is the only Animal Crossing podcast for me. My only complaint is that I wish there was more content to binge. Going to have to listen to the Barold episode again.

Highly recommend

If you like the Animal Crossing franchise and podcasts like Serial or S-Town, I HIGHLY recommend this podcast. It’s funny and light while having that deep dive investigative feel. I’ve actually learned new things about animal crossing while listening which is always fun. The people interviewed are interesting and I love hearing about how they played the game! This is a definite must listen for any AC fan!
