Hey buddies! This week we’re getting an inside look at the world of Last of Us with Lead Game Designer from Naughty Dog, Richard Cambier. There be Last of Us SPOILERS in this episode, but y’all should have already played it already! We talk about what it takes to create these immersive worlds and the stories that drive them. Ever wondered why you HAVE to kill all the doctors in the room to save Ellie at the end?! We get the answers to that question and even find out how clowns go about the world figuring their way out of fun situations!

The hilarious Ashley Esqueda (Nerdist Alpha, Senior Editor CNET) joins us this week to talk about her passion of future technology and specifically how it pertains to The Jetsons! Ashley met our co-host Ben Ellis at CES so we talk about the disaster that is Foldimate both in The Jestsons and IRL. What's happening down on planet earth while rich white families like the Jetsons eat their fancy pills for dinner and call pushing one button a job? Is it Demolition man down there? Who knows! But we have a super fun awesome time with our new BFF who we almost didn't let leave The 6-10 House. Follow @AshleyEsqueda  on Twitter and here is the recap video for The Jetson's we refer to  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1oDaHRbIDH8
