The Indoor Kids with Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon

It's the end of another year of all the forms of art and entertainment you can cram into your eyes and ears. Kumail and Emily go through their top picks for movies, games, and more, and are then joined by Gil, 10 year old boy genius, son of the owners of Meltdown Comics, and host of The Mutant Season. Gil talks about Christmas, his favorite games and movies, and more!

Today Kumail and Emily have a chat with Edmund and Danielle McMillen. You might know Edmund as 1/2 of Team Meat and the creator of games like Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac, you might know Danielle as the creator of plush toys for Edmund's games, and you might know them both from Indie Game: The Movie. It's like a regular double date as we discuss games, working at Game Stop, and living a life where you get to create things you love.

Plus we talk other games, Internet etiquette, and more!
