After a bit of a break to get Tearaway ready for announce, we squeezed back into Kenny’s recording studio for a new episode of the Mm Podcast! This episode allows us to finally talk about our new game Tearaway, and we’ve invited lead designers Dave and Rex to join us for some Tearaway Chat. Huzzizzles!
Here are the episode links

It’s the Jubilee Weekend here in the UK - our Queen has been sitting on her throne for
65 60 years, and so the entire country is celebrating with 50s themed street parties, and 500 million miles of bunting. If none of that means a thing to you, don’t worry, because more importantly (to some anyways) it’s also E3! The time of trailers and screenshots galore is on us once again, and whilst we at Mm are remaining at home this year, Alice, Spaff and Kenny are here to recount E3 tales of yore, and besides, LittleBigPlanet will be there.
We’re off to a rambling start in this week’s podcast, with questions about what exactly it is that Jagermeister’s made of, and how it is that Scrooge McDuck ever managed to successfully swim in his pool of gold coins. But thankfully, for your sanity’s sake (and ours), Kenny, Tom, Spaff, and Alice pull it together and dive into matters of utmost importance: various Scottish confectionery! The topic of the week takes us by surprise, as Tom reveals his childhood brush with fame, having appeared in a newspaper article about potential electrocution. Have you also ever made headlines? Send us your story to podcast AT mediamolecule.com!
Also, please welcome LittleBigPlanet’s new Community Co-ordinator, Steven Isbell, for his first-time Mm podcast appearance! We wheel Steven in to go over the LBP news this week, which includes Update 1.12!

And we’re back with your second Media Molecule podcast for the week! Isn’t that exciting? It is Easter weekend after all, and as we’ve missed you listeners so much, Kenny, Spaff, and Alice hop back into the sound cave mere days after the last recording. What is it like to see Obama punch a journalist in Mass Effect 3? How awesome is it that Alice has her white robe in Journey? And how dazzled are your ears by Kenny’s use of ‘ting’? You can find out by simply listen-ting!
Last, but not least, this week’s episode sees the second GDC special segment, an audio focussed discussion between Kenny and shiny special guests, Austin Wintory (Journey composer) and Brian Min (Double Fine Production’s Audio Director). We hope you enjoy it!
Shiny Guest Contact Info:
The birds are chirping, the sun’s been shining a bit, the flowers are starting to bloom, and our clocks have gone forward—all signs that spring has sprung! And with it, a shiny new podcast!
It’s been a while, and we’re down a Tom this week, but Kenny, Spaff, and Alice went into the sound cave to quickly catch up on where it is we’ve been this whole time, including tons of fun stuff that’s been happening in the Little Big Planet world!
But that’s not all! This podcast sees the first of two special segments we recorded in our adventures a few weeks ago during the annual Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. We hope you enjoy our two very special guests, Greg Rice from Double Fine Productions and Chris Remo from the Idle Thumbs Podcast. They speak with us about their amazing success on Kickstarter (very exciting and impressive) and then we dive into some wonderful indie games chatter.
As fate would have it, and as you may have noticed as it is now the 2nd of April and no longer a Friday, we did not manage to get the podcast up last week. So, it looks as though we’re the April Fools after all! See you soon :)

Games we talked of:
Do you smell that? Take a whiff—it’s the tantalising aroma of a new gaming device. The PlayStation Vita launched this week in the US and EU, and Kenny, Tom, and Alice are feeling the electronic device envy as folks around Mm towers start to unpack their very own shiny new handhelds. Spaff recounts tales of a recent LBP Vita game jam that took place at Tarsier Studios in Sweden. And, exciting news—the Sackies have reached the final phase! All you fine folks can now go and vote for your favourite finalists on LBP.me!
A lot of traveling is on the horizon for us podcasters though, with Game Developers Conference around the corner, followed by SXSW, so we quickly wrap things up with some fine (quality not confirmed) jokes!
Have you bought or plan to buy a PlayStation Vita? Let us know what games you’re looking forward to, or send us some jokes (maybe good ones!) to podcast AT mediamolecule.com

Oh dear… Have you ever played a game so vigorously—so enthusiastically, so POWERFULLY—that you’ve accidentally given yourself an injury? Spaff, Tom, Kenny, and Alice think back on all the times they’ve given themselves a game-related ouchie for this podcast’s Topic of the Week (spoiler: Spaff is made of glass and is currently sporting a fractured radius). Cradle that sore gaming thumb of yours as we read out some stories from you, the listeners!
On an entirely less “owie” note, the Sackies have reached the end of the nominations phase! Keep your butts glued to your seats, as the finalists will soon be revealed and you’ll be able to enter the voting phase. Very exciting :)
Lastly, if you managed to listen past our attempts at horrible puns early on in the podcast, you may have heard us mention some of the following:

Kenny, Alice, Tom and Spaff attend his week's episode of the podcast, which takes a dive into the mundane as we discuss tiling, shelf erecting, sink unblocking, and moving house. Kenny explains Burns Night, which leads to a special reading of a Burns Night classic poem, and that's not the only performance… that is if you could our impromptu attempt to record a song a performance.

We may be saying goodbye to tides of yule and, alas, bidding farewell to the entirety of last year, but please take time to welcome, welcome, welcome 2012’s first Mm podcast goodness! In keeping with new beginnings, keen listeners may notice we’ve freshened up the format a bit – and the addition of snazzy sounds is surely not to be missed!
This week’s TOPIC OF THE WEEK (WEEk WEek Week week….echo echo) is: “What is your new year’s resolution?” Feel free to chime in with yours in the comments below! Additionally, Kenny, Spaff, Tom, and Alice discuss who did what and where over the new year, dive into the latest and greatest LBP happenings, dance dangerously close to Kenny’s Star Wars mega-fan triggers, and dust off the good ol’ mail bag. We hope you enjoy it!

“Ho Ho Ho!” says Kenny’s somewhat dodgy Santa impersonation, for what seems like the second time. Oh, that’s because it IS the second time. Behold! The gang gets a dose of holiday ‘deja vu’ thanks to a failed first attempt at recording the podcast this week in a pub. Alas, the Pubcast was not to be, but don’t be sad—‘tis the season to be jolly! (And your ears will thank us for re-recording in Kenny’s sweet sound cave.)
It’s a jam-packed episode this week, for you dear listeners, on this Christmas Eve’s eve, with Kenny, Alice, Spaff, Tom, and John all squeezed into a the aforementioned (cosy) cave to recount their special family Christmas traditions, reveal a few holiday confessions,and revel in Little Big Planet’s bountiful collection of community Christmas competitions!
We hope you enjoy your own holiday festivities, whatever those may be!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
