About the Show

One host of the video game podcast Talk This

TALK THIS! is a weekly video game podcast hosted by Emma and Madelyn Paquette. Every main episode, they talk about two games- one old game (ten years old or more) and one new game (within the last year or two).

At the end of each show, Madelyn and Emma take the best elements from each game and mash them together into a brand new game idea. Are they good? Once in a blue moon. Are they dumb? Always.

On weeks between main episodes, we embark on Side-Quests! The format has evolved over the years, but our current style is to take turns leading a discussion of a video game topic of our choice. These have included the preservation of gaming history, the proliferation of fandom rage, and how to choose the greatest game of all time.

Every third Side-Quest, we switch gears to talk about what we've been playing the past six weeks! Sometimes that's a lot. Sometimes it's absolutely not. Sometimes it is only Animal Crossing.
