In this episode:
We are joined by ol’ pal Ken Lee to chat about something that we all need and love: food. We discuss the representation of food in various media: the mechanical applications in games, the presentation of food in professional vs amateur settings, and the eroticism of food. Also in our roundup: Jackson read Daytripper and Sunstone, went to the first women’s AFL game, and played Simurgh and Roll for the Galaxy; I played Round House; Ken had a great experience getting off a space station in Star Citizen; and Evan has been playing Resident Evil 7, with and without VR, and falling in love with Nioh.
