Editor’s Note: With school online due to COVID-19 and social distancing measures being implemented across the country, things will sound a bit different here at the Emerald Podcast Network as we navigate recording from separate physical spaces. We’ve got limited recording technology, so join us as we figure this out.

Alex, Janelle and Nolan cover the new Animal Crossing and Mario Maker updates, Jason Schreier's move to Bloomberg News and further GameStop antics.
