Kumail and Emily had so much to do at E3 that they couldn't cram it in to one episode! This week, you'll come with them as they tour the Midwest, and then you'll jump back in time and come with them as they go to parties at E3, walk the floor at E3, and run into buddies like Malik Forte, Troy Baker, Zach Woods, Kyle Hilliard of Game Informer, and more!

Next week, you'll hear the Indoor Kids con diary from E3, as they took their trusty tiny recorder to all the parties and demos, but had too much fun with Griffin to include it here!

AND WE'RE BACK! After a month-long hiatus, Kumail and Emily are back with new episodes, and we decided that we should return with an education. We decided to pick a person who has been raised in a dark dungeon to introduce them to videogames since their inception until today. What are the highlights? What are the advances? Joining us on this adventure is Jordan Morris, one of our favorites.

Welcome to the final time capsule episode of The Indoor Kids (relax, that just means we're going back to all-new episodes next week!), and by far one of the most thought-provoking episodes we've ever done. This one was recorded in 2013. We welcome Tom Bissell, video game critic turned video game writer, to talk about how wrong he was in approaching video game criticism. Plus you also get Kumail and Emily, in the here and now, talking about our week in entertainment consumption and everything else worth discussing.


Curl up by fire but leave all the lights on as you listen to this genuinely creepy episode with DC Pierson where we discuss some game-related stories that defy explanation... or are just a really good haunted cartridge story. Plus you'll get Intro Kids with Kumail and Emily, in the here and now, discussing Godzilla, Infamous 2, gaming news and more!
