It feels like every week I say “something weird happened” when describing our podcast. I might simply be that we have no real “normal” state to fall back on, and that everything is essentially new and strange. That said I feel like this week is on an island of its own. After last week’s podcast I had a listener pull me aside and comment that it sounded like it physically pained us to talk about Warcraft. I personally didn’t realize this until I went back and listened a bit, and I can absolutely see how someone could have that take away. More often than not we just have super confused feelings about the game, and tonight we delve into this… and it leads to a whole sequence of topics including the loss of “junk culture” and the businessification of things we love. For some of us you definitely can’t ever truly go back home.
