I Sh*t You Not! from Adam Conover- NEW PODCAST and NEW TOUR DATES

I Sh*t You Not! from Adam Conover- NEW PODCAST and NEW TOUR DATES
By Adam Conover • Issue #5 • View online
Hello folks! I have two big announcements, so let’s get to them quick!

I’m so excited to announce the launch of my new podcast, Humans Who Make Games, in partnership with IGN and Starburns Audio.
It’s an intimate longform interview podcast where I sit down with the creators and artists behind your favorite video games.
As a life-long lover of games, I’ve always felt that it’s so strange that the people who make them are so often invisible. You can find millions of hours of breakdowns of games’ plots, mechanics, or history on the Internet, but it’s strikingly rare that you have the chance to get to know the people behind the keyboard who created the dang game to begin with. That’s what this show attempts to rectify.
For our first season, I talk with Edmund McMillen (Super Meat Boy, Binding of Isaac), Derek Yu (Spelunky), Christine Love (Analogue: A Hate Story, Ladykiller in a Bind), Justin Ma (FTL, Into the Breach), and many more about what their first memory of games was, how they got into the industry, and what brought them to create the games they did.
This spring, I’m taking my new show MIND PARASITES LIVE on the road across the country. The show is a brand new combination of standup comedy and psychedelic biology class - if you love Adam Ruins Everything, you’ll love this show. Come out!
If you don’t see your city on the list, don’t despair – I’m going to be adding new tour dates soon, and I’ll update you on this list when I do.
