The Moving Pixels podcast discusses the troubling, provocative, and alluring world of The Binding of Isaac.

Theology, horror, and an old school console aesthetic combine in Edmund McMillen and Florian Himsl’s The Binding of Isaac.


Nick Dinicola and G. Christopher Williams return from Isaac’s basement with stories to tell and more than one observation about this troubling, provocative, and madly additictive roguelike shooter.
  


This podcast is also available via iTunes.
