Ep. 35 - A Lesson on Malt, Tribute to Anderson Silva, Politicians in Gaming - 10/30/20

We're back with another episode of our weekly craft beer, UFC, tech, and video game podcast, and there were interesting topics to discuss this week - including craft beer reviews, a tribute to Anderson Silva ahead of his retirement fight with the UFC, and a discussion around politician use of gaming to reach another population of voters!

Check out the full podcast episode at the link below!

This week, we reviewed craft beers from Hi-Wire Brewing and Lancaster Brewing Company, and gave a quick lesson on the role that malts play in the beer we drink. From sweetness to alcohol content, malts play a crucial role in the overall flavor building of your favorite beers.

We then discussed a couple of upcoming UFC fights, including Khamzat Chimaev vs. Leon Edwards, before transitioning into a quick tribute to Anderson Silva - looking back on his legendary career and why he should always be in the GOAT conversation.

In the tech space this week, we had some interesting topics to discuss, including the perspective of Playstation’s CEO, Jim Ryan on VR’s place in the gaming industry. Ryan, in an interview with the Washington Post, claimed that he believes VR won’t be a meaningful part of gaming for years.

Finally, we rounded out the show by discussing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s near-record setting Twitch stream of ‘Among Us,’ which turned into a discussion of politicians’ use of gaming to appeal to a huge audience of potential voters. As this may be a scary proposition, we closed out the segment by talking about our favorite horror games of all time (or lack thereof!)
