EXP Podcast #189: Exploring Intelligent Nostalgia

Ah, remember the good ol' days? Back when you would have to blow on your games to make them work? When Battle Toads was so difficult you would cry, but keep playing anyway? When the "hottest graphics" were about as detailed as your Lego castle? Do you miss those days? Could that charming haze be the tell-tale sign of nostalgia glasses? This week on the EXP Podcast, Scott and I discuss the power of nostalgia, retro-graphics, and mumblecore. As always, check out Leigh Alexander's inspiring article in the show notes and leave your thoughts (and your examples of nostalgia), in the comments below.

  1. Hello, I am a big fan of your podcasts. But recently you are ending every sentence with "right?" What's up with that? It is really irritating, right? Right!

  2. Vocal tics are annoying, right? ;-)

    But seriously, it's easy to fall into bad habits, so thanks for the heads up and thanks for listening!
