Harmful Apoliticism in Video Games
Six Days in Fallujah was recently revitalized for 2021. This first-person shooter based on the Second Battle of Fallujah will be totally apolitical, according to the head of the publisher. Can a shooter based on a real-world conflict in recent memory really refrain from making any political commentaries? How damaging is it for this game to be marketed in a way that’s completely divorced from making political statements?

The Year Crunch Won—or Did It?
Fun fact: Crunch Bandicoot is a cyborg bandicoot created by Dr. Neo Cortex to kill Crash. Since then, he’s joined the Bandicoot family as Crash and Coco’s older brother. Anyway, we’re talking about Naughty Dog’s problem with crunch, and whether crunch could save Cyberpunk 2077. Wake the fuck up, samurai. We have a games industry to burn.

There are no more politics on this island, not after Uncle Nintendo passed its new laws about Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Is Joe Biden’s island cancelled now?

All These Romance Manhwa Being Advertised to Me Are Weird, Step-brother
Welcome to the weird, wonderful, very 18+ world of online comics and their fujoshi readers. We dove into some of the more popular, and more disturbing titles of manhwa like Killing, Stalking and Beauty and the Beasts to figure out why the hell Instagram is advertising these saucy comics to us.

Why is Catgirl?
Why have your tax dollars go toward sustainable infrastructure, when they could be going toward genetically engineered catgirls?

Social Media and American Politics
We say that sometimes, the internet can be too much. The way it has fractured America’s shared reality is a prime example of that. The 2020 presidential election showcases how the United States isn’t as united as you’d think, and the Everything in Poderation crew dives into how social media played a role in that polarization.

Happy Halloween to all you ghouls and goblins out there!

Gatekeeping in Anime Discourse
Anime is trash, and so are we. But we had shit taste in anime before you did, so you can’t enjoy anime. We take a look at our personal histories with anime and how the internet has changed the anime community for the better (and worse). And also gatekeeping sucks.

Boneghazi
It all started with a Facebook post published with the best of intentions. It ended with an arrest and new laws restricting the trafficking of human remains. Daley introduces us to the wonderful world of witchcraft online—and an exceedingly odd incident of a Louisiana cemetery getting picked over for bones. Strangest of all is the discussion that followed this meme-able crime about identity politics, being woke, and the apparently un-fluffy nature of modern witchcraft.

Why We're Moving on From Terrace House
You might know some of us from another show called Tadaima: A Terrace House Podcast. In the summer of 2020, we laid the show to rest for various reasons, some of which are detailed in this episode. If you’re familiar with us from Tadaima, we hope this answers some of your questions as we start our new podcasting journey. Rest in peace, Hana Kimura.

Gamer Entitlement
Here at Poderation Studios, we’re all lifelong gamers. However, it’s easy to see the discourse in various online gaming communities turn sour very quickly, often against developers. Sometimes, the backlash is warranted; other times, it goes a bit out of control. There are even a couple times where the developers bite back. Why is there so much vitriol in the gaming space? Why are gamers so quick to toxicity and death threats? We dive into that and more in this week’s episode of Everything in Poderation.
