Infinity +1: Powered by Geekdom House.

The gold medal winning podcast, it’s Infinity +1! Jason, Allison, and Kyle invite Dan Bergman to the show this week to talk about his upcoming Guinness World Record attempt to play Super Smash Bros. 4 for more than 48 hours straight! They also ask a very important Question of the Week about what five franchises they would take with them to a desert island and dream about an Olympics for gamers—the E-lympics.

Then in the second segment, it’s all about nostalgia. With Stranger Things being the talk of the town, how do we navigate strong feelings of nostalgia and still move forward? What games, sights, smells or thoughts bring your back to a specific time in your life?Why are ’90s kids marketed to almost exclusively through nostalgia? Find out the answers to these questions are more on Infinity +1!
