Episode 62: No Cartridge is true; everything is permitted" w/ Marc Normandin!


We welcome Marc (@marc_normandin) Normandin on the podcast to talk about everything Assassin's Creed -- the joy of Origins, the downslides of the past, and why Ezio being a great character is a narrative problem of sorts. I also zing the Red Sox one (1) time.

For more from Marc, check out @marc_normandin as well as all of his writing on SBNation.

For more from me, follow @hegelbon or check over at For updates from the intern, follow @nocartridge

This episode was produced by the immensely talented and patient Julian Crocamo, who can be found @thirdsecond and @atsband
