Episode 50 – Explorers Wanted / Harley Quinn

Infinity +1: Powered by Geekdom House.

We’ve flown over the cucoo’s nest, it’s Infinity +1! Dustin Schellenberg returns to the podcast to join Jason, Allison and Kyle as they answer answer a throwback Question of the Week about video game manuals. Then, after a quick aside about a really cool BioWare contest, Jason has prepared another scintillating instalment of Conundrum! Can you guess the audio clues better than the hosts? Listen and find out!

The second half of the episode approaches the subjects explored by Dustin in his recent article, One of Your Many Toys, about Harley Quinn in the recent Suicide Squad movie. When Dustin watched it he left with a different impression of the themes than many people he spoke with. Why is the Harley/Joker relationship seemingly treated with such reverence? What is the nature of control and manipulation being used to control her and is it faithful to the way we understand Harley and Joker to be in other sources?

The song in the break is the Pirates of the Caribbean Theme (8 Bit) by Hyperama
