Dig Dug – Episode 071

Welcome to the beginning of the Blue Collar miniseries that explores the ordinary and dependable workers who somehow become the hero of their own arcade game. So it’s time to pop some Pookas, fry some Fygars, and eat some dirt with everyone’s favorite divorcé, Dig Dug.

Is it ethical to euthanize nuisance animals from your garden by any means necessary? What did Namco’s writers have against Taizo Hori? How much did Atari bank by licensing this strategic digging game?

We also perform at 23andMe on Grimace, peddle some bootleg medical equipment, explore Jarrod’s love for vicious ladybugs, and let the hate flow through us while discussing the Obi-Wan Kenobi series (caution: may contain minor spoilers).
