87 - MLB Mascot Mr. Met
The Subway Series is the excuse I needed to repost this Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show where I interview the actor who played Mr. Met from 1999-2011. That’s a stretch of time that covers the first subway series as well as two historic collapses, all of which are discussed from a mascot’s perspective in this episode.
“We went back to your place and listened to the White Album. We ordered in. We fought and made up and got good jobs and got married and bought an apartment and worked out and ate more and talked less.”—

01 - Tinycast - Animal Crossing
Whaaattttttt. If you have a couple hours to kill before New Leaf officially releases — or maybe you have a few days before it shows up in your mailbox or country — you can listen to four grown men gushing about the game for an hour in this Tiny Cartridge Animal Crossing: New Leaf podcast special.
The folks on this episode include myself, Buttocks mayor Eric Caoili, Gamasutra’s Christian Nutt, and frequent TC contributor Francesco Dagostino. We meander through a wide range of topics, like all the additions that make this the best Animal Crossing yet, and how our experiences playing the 3DS game have been so different from each other’s so far.
We hope you enjoy this experiment! Please leave us feedback and let us know if you want more of these! Oh, and you can download this episode as an MP3 from its Soundcloud page if you prefer.
