SEG: Jojocast Volume 1

In this episode of Super Excite Game’s side project, tentatively called Jojocast, we are discussing the first volume of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure! We dig right into the origins of a story that spans several generations, bloodlines, even realities! The first volume of the story starts when a vagrant named Dario Brando comes across the scene of an accident, the sole survivors being George Joestar and his son, Jonathan. This sets off a chain of events that sets Dario’s son, Dio, headlong into Jonathan’s destined path. They don’t know just how important first impressions can be! In two weeks we will be talking about volume 2, so read up and talk to you then! PS: Yes, Jessica’s mic sounds pretty bad.

Theory From The Closet 069: Interview with Epidiah Ravachol

Theory From The Closet 069: Interview with Epidiah Ravachol

This is an interview I did with Epidiah Ravchol about his project Words without Master, and the Patreon campaign that supports the project. On the way we discuss all kinds of other things like nano games, finally getting mom to understand, and how the world has less no’s in it now. This was super easy on my part, and I think has set the new record for show length, clocking in at around 2 hours and 15 minutes.
