This week, our guest Jeff Ryan, author of Super Mario, ran a bit late, so you are treated to Kumail and Emily just hanging out and discussing video games and movies and Harry Potter centaurs. Then Jeff Ryan joins us for a discussion about the history of Nintendo and what it needs to do in the future, and finally, we have a fun chat with Matthew Burnside backstage at The Meltdown, catching up on gaming news. Enjoy this hodgepodge of an episode.
