    Language

    Language

    Okay everyone, let's have a real talk here. We looked at the aftermath of the Cow episode and decided, "we can't do this every episode" so we tried to pick a topic that was a little more serious and a little less ripe for bits and riffing. And this episode on "Language" delivers some some real insights on the topic. We also did a 10 minute bit about how Beedle from Breath of the Wild might be the final antagonist of Hitman. We hope you enjoy!
    In this episode: David rekindles a longstanding anime feud. Greg learns how to pronounce a new word. Giovanni flirts with semiotics. Tess is assassinated by Agent 47.

    Cow feat. Tom Zalatnai

    Cow feat. Tom Zalatnai

    Hey everyone - you're amazing! Because of your generosity, the Annual LTRT 24-Hour Charity Stream raised over $6,400.00 for The Florence Project! That's more than we raised in the last three years combined! We are absolutely, absurdly grateful to everyone who donated and everyone who came by to support us. 
    But, the fundraising isn't quite done yet! Everyone who signs up to our Patreon in February will have their donation forwarded to The Florence Project! If you've got a buck or two to spare and want to help support the show you can do that over at patreon.com/LTRT. Every bit helps!
    Listeners - this topic is "Cow." We don't know how to lead into this one. We don't know how to be quippy or clever. Our good friend Tom Zalatnai came to us with this topic and you know, we agreed to it and now it's here. So. This is Cow. All we'll say is that much like a cow, this episode is a wild ride from front to back. 
    You can find all of Tom's shows over at the Upford Network - that's upfordnetwork.com. Make sure to check out their shows - you might hear a couple familiar voices on some of them. 
    In this episode: Greg wonders if there's a form of carcinization but for cows. Tom explains how they learned to cook from a digital mama. Tess explores their past names. Giovanni looks for greener digital pastures. David just kind of breaks.

    Craft

    Craft

    Listeners, is there anything more rewarding than making something with your own two hands? Yes, there is - it's making that something in a videogame. After the ...events... of the last episode, we thought it would be important to record an episode that's actually about videogames. But don't worry - "Craft" is the topic, but we still manage to spend almost 10 minutes talking about the 2006 film The Departed. You know, just like a videogame podcast would do. 
    David laments the impermanent nature of crafting in games. Giovanni becomes a Scorsese Scholar. Colin blasts some blupees. Greg is censored for calling out yet another website.  
    We've been streaming at twitch.tv/lefttriggerrighttrigger, so please give us a follow over there. If you want to catch up on past streams you can find them over on our YouTube page. You can also give us a follow on Twitter (@LTRTCast) or on the Left Trigger Right Trigger Facebook Page.  We'd also really appreciate if you take a moment to give us a rating and review on your podcatcher of choice.  
    Games discussed include Stardew Valley, Resident Evil, FUSER, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Ri🌙 ,

a quality podcast!!

If you wanna listen to a funny podcast that makes you re evaluate the meanings of words this is for you! They also sometimes talk about video games. To clarify, I’m coming from the episode “Bowl,” which was lowkey a disappointment, not bc of the lack of video game discussion, but bc I feel like someone should have brought up the weed type of bowl.

Fun show about video games that’s for everyone

I’m a pretty casual gamer, but the way these four talk about video games makes it accessible for pretty much anyone. The show is fun and funny, interesting, and thoughtful. Very enjoyable show, highly recommended.

Funny Twist Video Game Podcasts

These guys put a fresh twist on video game podcasts by bringing a topic each week, along with their idiotic senses of humor. Wow... you read reviews and think they sound so fake but then you go to write one and realize this is just how reviews sound when you right them down. Who knew?

Anyway, I look forward to this podcast every two weeks and honestly wIsh it was weekly! If you like it, don’t be afraid to go back to the beginning and get in on some of the running gags. They have layers.
