My fellow Dtoiders, so I had been in the habit of posting each week about the show I'm involved in (Go For Rainbow
) but I think I'll just do a monthly recap from here on out.
Last month we essentially interrupted an interview with Time
that Leigh Alexander was giving about women in games, to chat with her about her regular gaming habits, whether she writes in expectation of internet comments, and her book Breathing Machine
Earlier in the month we spoke with the indomitable and lovely critic and developer Ian Bogost about how gaming culture relates to geographical space, when to whip out the PhD cred and more.
Here's an interview Ian did on the Colbert Report
if you missed it.

On another episode last month, when an interview fell through we sent a message to William Pugh asking for an impromptu interview over Skype, which he granted us on the spot! We asked him how he's living since the huge success of The Stanley Parable HD
and asked about his reaction to the New Yorker
article mentioning his monetary success: "The Guilt of the Video Game Millionaires."
He tells us he's still living with his parents and playing a lot of Team Fortress 2.
He might get a Wii U when Mario Kart 8

Most recently we chatted with the Developer of Four Sided Fantasy.
Whose game may or may not include A CORGI WEARING A DESTRUCTOID HAT.
We made this episode as the developers were trying to fund their game on Kickstarter. Did Go For Rainbow
push the Four Sided Fantasy
Kickstarter over the top? Does a loaded phrasing of a question help insert groundless ideas into people's minds??
Corgi with a Destructoid hat?!?
Thanks for listening kids! We love you.
