The Incomparable

This week on my pop-culture podcast The Incomparable, I am joined by John Siracusa, Tiffany Arment, Brianna Wu, and Tony Sindelar to talk all about the Portal series of video games. The games are classics and it was a great discussion.

There’s also a bonus track with more mischief including a song sung by Andy Ihnatko! And in a first for us, one of our listeners—superfan Clinton Phillips—did an entire commentary track to the episode. It’s only a matter of time before there’s a podcast about The Incomparable every week. Hey, it worked for Slate and Serial.

This week’s Incomparable is sponsored by:

Clockwise Podcast

Clockwise is a weekly podcast that’s 30 minutes long and hosted by me and Dan Moren. In this week’s episode, we’re joined by our former Macworld colleague Dan Frakes and Black Pixel’s Jessie Char to discuss 12-inch MacBook rumors, why tech hipsters hate on Facebook, selling you a new TV, and the relevance of CES.

Finally, this week on my tech podcast, Upgrade, Myke Hurley and I discuss Apple’s software quality issues and the difficulty in diagnosing problems from outside an organization, why Family Sharing is a problematic feature, and what’s good and bad about CES.
