Earlier this year, I had Glimmer on the podcast. They had suggest their partner, Shoopa, would be great to talk to. And now, here we are several months later!

Shoopa joins me to talk about a number of new to the podcast fandoms, which always gets me excited. The first thing we talk about is Rhythm games. These include games like Dance Dance Revolution and Taiko no Tatsujin. Shoopa also talks about how he was/is a competitive DDR player (since the recording he's won a tournament), and the DDR scene in several places.

Then we turn to Sega's mascot, Sonic. Shoopa talks about his love for the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. From the characters, to his favorite games, the music, and so much more. 

Shoopa then talks about how he got into The Owl House. We talk about the show, the connection it has with him and Glimmer, the characters, and what the show meant to him.

Then we wrap up with a conversation about Cosplay. Shoopa talks about how he got into cosplay, the characters he does, creating cosplay and the various props, and what his plans are for the future.
