MPH Podcast EP #3 – Poparella From Downtown

Poparella finally arrives to claim her throne as the co-host in this episode of Mousepad Heroes!  We delve in to her nerd origin story as she takes us through how she discovered YouTube, some of her favorite personalities and how she created her own channel.  Next we ponder the nature of the characters in our short film series, the Usurper [spoilers ahead] and discuss what may be next for the Faradays.  From there we spend some time discussing Pop’s favorite game, Roblox and the role playing community she geeks out with in that world.

MPH Podcast EP #1 – My Family Had Colecovision

On our first episode of Mousepad Heroes, Jay & Liz set the stage for many conversations to come by discussing the access to technology and the Internet that kids have today.  We look back at our own experiences discovering technology and dive in to some of the social circles we find online.  The conversation explores the sense of wonder, adventure and risk we experience connecting with people online through gaming and the dangers that exist for kids making those same connections.

Reference Notes:

  1. The now defunct video game retailer that sold used equipment in the late 1990s in the US was FuncoLand (now GameStop)
  2. The mobile game Kingdom Clash is published by FireMocha and Clash of Clans is published by Supercell
