Ep. 48 – Giving Reboots the Boot

Did you miss us?

The Happy Xen Podcast returns after Summer break, diving head first into pop culture controversy with the dreaded REBOOT! In this episode we go over what is good,  bad, and just plain unneeded with reboots. Plus we get into the differences (and which we prefer) between a reboot, a remake and the long after sequel. Will you agree with Adam or Matt? Or are they both completely off the mark? We also pay tribute to the late great Chadwick Boseman, fill you in on what we’ve been up to over these past couple of months, and what’s been happening in the world of geek and pop culture! So listen in once more as we continue to fill your ears with our Xennial point of view on The Happy Xen Podcast!

Ep. 47 – Anarchy Rules, With Special Guest Jason Anarchy!

He’s back!

After over 2 years, the long awaited return of Canadian superstar game designer Jason Anarchy is finally here! Jason was one of our favourite guests during the early days of the show, so we were so excited that he was able to join us to talk about his new game up on Kickstarter called Your Friend is Sad.

Jason walks us through this crazy, (and strangely fitting in our current time) new game about cheering up a sad friend, and how it came to be. Plus we discuss how his career has had to adapt due to the pandemic, and how he relaxes when he’s got a little down time. We also introduce a new segment called the Speed Round that you don’t want to miss!  So listen in once more as we continue to fill your ears with our Xennial point of view on The Happy Xen Podcast!
