A weekly dive into the seriously silly world of Sonic the Hedgehog. Indie game developer Nick Splendorr and author Caleb Zane Huett study everyone's favorite blue guy to learn about games, stories, and maybe even ourselves. There's also a lot of goofing.
We talk a little about the tonal weirdness of Mario Odyssey, big-picture lesssons from this year in big games, and whether Sonic Team needs to keep trying to make “big games” to reach Sonic’s true potential.
