Depending on who you ask, the Penumbra is either the grandest railway this side of Nowhere or a twice-monthly podcast series. Each episode takes the form of a 30-50 minute radio play.The Penumbra is all about stories you recognize told in ways you won’t expect. Your femme fatale might be an homme fatale; you might find that not every haunting needs a ghost. Your criminal underworld might advertise on billboards ten miles tall, and when push comes to shove your home might have a bit more hear ...
 
Watch Out for Fireballs! is a game club podcast, focused on retro and non-current games. Every week, we play a game in its entirety, then discuss its merits and flaws at length. Most episodes begin with a short sketch, and we're pretty liberal about keeping tangents in. But it ultimately comes down to: Why do we like (or dislike?) this game.

In this half-frame episode I catch up with Dana Stirling from Float Magazine. Dana and her partner in life and business, Yoav Friedlander, were guests back on episode 49. Dana and I talk about the upcoming issue of Float entitled "Killing Time" and we talk about the rewards of promoting others and building a community while keeping in mind the ...…
 
This is the first of two episodes about Final Fantasy X, a watershed game for Square that acts as a bridge between old and new for the series. Tidus is swept away into a strange world by an eldritch monstrosity. He finds new friends and ends up on a pilgrimage to rid the world of that same monstrosity. This episode covers the generalities and t ...…

This month Will and Laura discuss the writer Reinaldo Arena's, a queer man who lived in Cuba during the rise of Castro. They then discuss being creative in difficult times, swearing, and why Castro truly sucks. The queer recommendation this month is the novel Kindness For Weakness which you can find here: https://fortisbook.ca/products/97803857 ...…
 
Adaptation Decay is a show that we love doing, but not a lot of people have dug into it. So we want to give you a slice for free. And it's a primo slice, a real New York Slice. That's right, we're talking the Super Mario Bros. movie. Reviled at the time, but actually fun and weird, it's a great intro to this show. If you like this, you can go g ...…

Owlboy is a visually beautiful indie platformer with a killer soundtrack. It's a labor of love, and you can see that in every masterfully drawn piece of spritework. It's unfortunate that the aesthetics are attached to flat gameplay and story. It's a shame that it never fully explores its own mechanics, because the inventive boss fights show som ...…

"I remember sitting in that art history class and loving it, but flipping through the textbook and not seeing myself in it. And so I was like, 'do black people not make art?' and I know they make art because I grew up in New York."Kayla Coleman is a Collector Relations Liaison for the Carrie Able Gallery in Brooklyn, NY. She is an art historian ...…
 
Gary and Kole dig into this NES classic, and our first time covering a Kunio-Kun game. Alex's girlfriend has been kidnapped by Slick, so we have to punch, kick, and pipe our way across River City and its gangs. This is a fun game that's stymied a bit by antiquated progression mechanics, but it feels too damn good in your hands to hold that agai ...…

A blow of the hunting-horn. A battlecry. Boots that crash through snow and ice, the crackling of open flame, the bellow of an ancient, timeless beast of the frozen tundra. They call him Old Cinder, the Frozen King of Flame. And this is just another New Year's celebration in the Southern Frosts. Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Travelers. We hope y ...…
 
Charles Traub is my first guest for the new half-frame episodes where I catch up with previous guests on what they have been up to. Charles and I talk about his new book, Taradiddle.

Kevin takes a second to sit down and rap with you about Imagined Life, a new show from Wondery that puts you in the shoes of someone wildly famous and successful. Are the shoes comfortable? Do they have good arch support? And whose shoes are you wearing, exactly? Only the third of these three questions will be answered on this show, and it's su ...…
 
"They are really poignant images and they really sort of resonated humanity, and because I didn't know the author, I didn't know the intent or anything, in some ways that allowed me to kind of engage with them. Because I didn't feel like I was being manipulated, I was in control their meaning in some ways." -Oliver Wasow"Since the election, the ...…
 
(We are three days late with the update, and we are so sorry, but we were late because we were getting married so at least we have a very good excuse) This month Laura and Will discuss the ladies of Llangollen, and desperately try to pronounce Welsh words with minimal stumbling. They then discuss Horror cinematography, and The Haunting of Hill ...…
 
This third episode of our Baldur's Gate II coverage takes us away from the free-wheeling open-ended climes of Chapter 2 and puts us on the story's rails, as we get on Irenicus' trail and follow him to a Wizard Asylum and finally into the iconic Underdark. There's some fantastic content to be covered here, and they even made the Sahuagin interes ...…

Do you know how many candy bars I'd have to sell to raise 20,000 GP!?!? We left Part 1 of our Baldur's Gate II coverage with an outrageous mandate... to raise a ton of money to get information about where our soul (and sister) were taken. But Athkatla is a dirty and greedy city, so there's plenty of work to do. This episode covers most of Chapt ...…

Lots of folks have waited very patiently for us to get around to covering Baldur's Gate II. It's a very well-regarded classic game, and it fits in well with our love for all things Dungeons and Dragons. So this month, we are doing a four part series.

"This was all slow kind of going as well, an email here and there, and it wasn't until 2014 that Harold's health started to fail quite seriously…and Judith dropped me a line and said, 'if you are serious about doing this film, just fyi, let's get on with it.' So I did and that was where I had to kind of take a bit of a leap of faith. "Filmmaker ...…
 
The creatures which thrive at the end of the world are enough to make even the bravest knight's skin crawl. Massive slugs of sentient slime and nightmare-guards to a fortress beneath a sea where nothing survives walk the halls that lead to Fort Terminus, and passing them will be no small feat. Yet our heroes trudge on. On separate paths they dr ...…

Two paths wind beneath Judge Helicoid's monstrous courtroom: two paths containing different players in this game, different tricks and traps and treacheries. All they share is this: A destination. Fort Terminus, the prison at the end of the world. Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Travelers. We hope you enjoy your journey. (Trigger warnings can be ...…
 
"I think the first thing that happened, which is the big overarching theme of the book, was the missing Malaysian plane…and all the kind of mythology and conspiracy that followed it, and that led to a much bigger more personal theme, which is about Andrew, Tom's cousin, who also died in a plane crash." - Paul Kwiatkowski"The book is not a refle ...…
 
The world of the Witcher 3 is almost completely dark and grim, where moral ambiguity reigns supreme. So it's strange for Geralt's tale to end in Toussaint, which is picturesque and relatively calm... except for the murders. It's also a land of chivalric values that seem nice at first but are actually pretty backwards. This massive expansion see ...…

Give up control. That's what the thing that looks like Mick says to do. And in a year like the one Juno Steel has had, with the past, present, and city of the future all out to get him... why not? In a world where control can be torn from you so easily, so constantly... why not just give in, let that thing plug you in to its monstrous chip, and ...…
