TALK THIS! is a biweekly podcast about video games hosted by Emma and Madelyn Paquette. Every show, they talk about two games- one old (pre-2007) and one new (within the last year or two). At the end of each show, Madelyn and Emma take the best elements from each game and mash them together into a brand new game idea.
