The Indoor Kids with Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon
Today we are joined by the Game Director of The Last of Us, a guy who has been with Naughty Dog for many years, to discuss everything about directing a video game, the challenges of a game like Last of Us, character development, and much much more. We loved this interview.

Like we always do for Comic-Con, Emily and Kumail spent their time roaming the floor and talking to their friends about the wonders of Comic-Con. You'll come with us to exclusive parties, hear us react to booths, and then hear a run down of the things we found most exciting from this year's Con. Featuring Jordan Morris, listener Alex, Jensen Karp, Benjamin Simpson, Garfunkel and Oates (aka Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci), Mike Rosenstein, and Steve Agee.

After numerous requests, we brought on one of our favorite guests, Jeff Rubin, to play the Metagame with us, talk about the games we're playing now, and much more. Burnside was late but joins us at the end to play too!

Please excuse Kumail and Emily for not being able to remember the name "Metagame" in the intro. We recorded that part at 2am. You can buy Meta Game here. While we're giving out links, you can preorder Kumail's special Beta Male on Amazon here. You can also watch it on Comedy Central this Saturday, July 20th, at midnight!

Today, Kumail and Emily welcome Spencer Crittenden, the resident Dungeon Master of Harmontown, to talk about how he started world-building, how that applies to his love of video games and life, and also how he's a time traveler in Animal Crossing. Plus we discuss playing old Game Boy games, make Spencer describe monsters you've created, talk about what we're playing now, and more more more!

Today we welcome back one of our favorite guests, Jordan Morris, to sit around and discuss some of the weirder aspects of nerd culture: dissenting opinions, piling on criticism, changes to origin stories, and more. Plus we talk gaming news, stuff we're playing now, and take a walk on the Burnside!
