“Going outside is highly overrated" so join us as we nerd out on Ernest Cline's Ready Player One! We dive into the novel's expansive world of 1970s and 80s pop culture, explore why it makes us nostalgic, and debate if the story is more than just a mashup of nerdy references. It's a street fight between Ready Player One's Wade "Parzival" Watts VS. Scott Pilgrim in the INFINITE CROSSOVER CHAMBER and we get all the feels with our top 5 nostalgia media.
