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.
Rather than just talk about one shot from one scene from one episode today, we’re GOING BIG and talking about an entire cartoon! Lest our ambitions get the best of us, Sonic reminds us that all empires come to ruin, especially ones without compassion.
