The first episode of Kentucky Route Zero's mines, maps, and madness all beg to be explored, which is exactly what we attempt to do in this week's podcast.

A strange little indie release early this year took us all by surprise. Mesmerizing in its absurd presentation and deeply indebted to text adventures of days past, Kentucky Route Zero presents a world in decay, begging to be excavated.

We’ll consider the madness, the vulgarity, the downright frustrating mechanics, and also how Suda provokes and interrogates gaming through what was most Americans first glimpse of one of video games’ most colorful auteurs.
