Happy April! It’s always a sunshine day when the Pie Factory Podcast brings you a new episode! This time, kick back with a couple of relaxing video games from the ’80s, following Jim and Sean through their adventures.
(Note: even though we at least twice mentioned the date we recorded this episode, we know that it’s easy to forget or not even notice, but…this episode was recorded before the stay-at-home orders were issued! We assure you we take our health and that of others seriously and as such we practice social distancing. Then again, it’s not much of a change of pace for either of us, given our social skills.)
With an episode title that sounds like a band name, Sean and Jim are back with another rip-roarin’ jaunt into the Golden Age of Video Games, asking that musical question: “Huh?”
In this episode, Jim and Sean study the intricacies of the contrapuntal philosophies of the next-generation trends of the upper echelon and how they relate to the hoi polloi’s intrapersonal struggle with the id and the superego. Or…was that another episode?? Hmm…well, this episode talks about either that or a couple of old video games called Space Panic and Looping; we don’t remember for sure.
Sean and Jim celebrate the anniversaries of the classic albums Blonde on Blonde, Pet Sounds, and The Who: Live at Leeds by talking about two games as suggested by a Patreon supporter. Oh…and neither of them say a peep about any of those albums. *ahem*
Just the title of episode 93 is longer than some of the tweets we’ve sent out. Unlike with episode 92, these two games actually provide us with something substantial to say…imagine that! And we hope to see you at Midwest Gaming Classic today!

In this off-topic episode, Jim and Sean reminisce about life with their favorite 16-bit computers. COMING SOON: A SPECIAL MIDWEST GAMING CLASSIC ANNOUNCEMENT!
