    After a few false starts with an anti-tycoon game concept and a Miitomo + Tinder hybrid, we settle into what might be our greatest idea yet: a marriage of Scribblenauts and Bookworm Adventures that redefines what edutainment can be.

Beyond great

My worries sink away as the music fades in and two familiar friendly voices enter. The aesthetic of this is on point and the humor is too. This just makes me forget everything, I drift off to sleep as I listen to these two guys talk about games that I’m furious don’t exist. I am quite disturbed by the controversy surrounding Nick, but I believe ignorance is bliss and that’s why all I know about it is sexual misconduct and that’s all I’m willing to know. I’m upset that this podcast is going over, but at least it left us with 71 episodes in its wake, not including the CGI JRs.

Holds a very special place in my heart

I started listening to this podcast in 2016 while going through a very dark and lonely time in my life. It was one of the few things I had to look forward to. Every episode would bring tears to my eyes from laughing so hard and I had a hard time stopping myself from giggling even while listening in public. 5 years on and I’m happy to say that I’m doing MUCH better, but I still turn to this podcast when I’m feeling anxious or lonely or stressed. I’ve heard every episode more times than I can count and they never get old. Griffin and Nick are both very funny individually but together they are an absolute comedic powerhouse. I don’t know much of the details of what Nick did to get fired/receive so much backlash. I’m not qualified to say whether it was deserved. However, I also don’t believe there’s such a thing as ideologically or morally pure media. So, I understand why this podcast ended, but I’m still sad about it and I will always be deeply, deeply fond of it.

a monument

If you’re just landing here; sorry. The show is dead. One of the hosts ended up being a weird sex pervert & the other moved on to thirty seven other podcasts with his brothers/wives. It was a fun & unique show that will now sit here forever, a monument to wasted potential.
