At least we had video games in 2020.

It is not breaking any new ground to say 2020 was a dumpster fire. In that raging dumpster fire though, there was a small little ray of hope and escapism in the name of …video games! It is not hyperbole to say that video games provided that much needed comfort in these dark times to the entire world. And while 2020 brought out the worst in gamers (we’re looking at you The Last of Us 2/Cyberpunk entitled knuckleheads), it also brought out some real fantastic game experiences that we were able to get completely immersed in. It gave us a way to connect with family/friends digitally, in a world where we couldn’t physically see each other. So join Tuong La and ‘Sus Gamers’ Angus MacDonald, Ethan Howieson, and Matthew Whalley as they celebrate the best games of 2020!

PodCavern’s Spookening Begins!

We are doing a whole month of spooky-themed movies for this month’s episodes of Talkin’ Tuong! So join Tuong La and Half Ghost-Half Werewolf Kyle Jones, as we watch Martin Freeman take on Zombies (and an Australian accent) in 2017’s Cargo (now streaming on Netflix!).

The (slightly) relaunched Talkin’ Tuong is here and we are kicking things off with PodCavern fan favorite…Samantha Leggatt! The whole idea of this new-ish format is to find ways to connect with friends (old and new) in these darker times by talking about something more fun, like the types of art we are consuming more of these days. For the foreseeable future, we will be doing 1 on 1 interview shows with new guests every Monday to discuss the latest pop culture news as well as talk about one movie/tv or show/game/etc. that we both agreed to watch pre-recording. So sit back and enjoy our newest episode about Pixar’s latest movie…Onward!

BRAAAAAIINNSS!
Zombies aka The Living Dead aka Biters aka Creepers aka (a thousand other ghoulish names) has permeated mainstream culture in a big way for decades, especially when George A. Romero launched his vision of what we perceive as the “modern zombie” today. Whether it’s your slow shuffling zombie to your horrifyingly fast flesh eating zombie, there has been a number of different haunted takes throughout all types of fiction and mediums. On this year’s Spookifying Halloween special of Ranked, join Tuong La and Undead Creepers Angus MacDonald. Samantha Leggatt, and Taylor Fleming as they celebrate these pop-culture monsters, eat the brains of the living, and come up with the Top 5 Things Featuring Zombies.
